The wonderful Dragonfly
After doing some Goggling for dragonflies I became motivated and decided to go out and hunt them down. I must admit I do love Dragonflies. They take me back to my childhood and with so many varieties, they are the most beautiful and amazing insects that grace our space. What a challenge to photograph, with the big eyes and quick reflexes, the dragonfly don't hang around too long and sense changes in light which warn of predators..
What's better than a hot, humid day to take a few photos of one of my favorite insects? So, I drove to a wetland area and soon discovered the biting deer flies. Oh my!@$%!!!! I was not prepared for the onslaught and having not repellent my only hope was to break off a some grasses growing on the side of the path and attempted to fight my way through the attack.
These Photos are the results of my efforts, bite marks and all.
