What Big Brown Eyes You Have

I haven’t posted much this summer because it’s been so hot I haven’t prowled around the yard much. And when I have I’ve come up empty. All the critters must be hanging out someplace cooler. I do, however, see dragonflies hovering around my redbud tree each evening. A few days ago this one lit on the handle of a basket I was cleaning.

DragonflyI used the macro setting to coax the auto focus to select the dragonfly and not the grid of the basket below. As I was shooting I could see his head turn from time to time. He was keeping an eye on me but sat still for a half-dozen shots at a distance of about six inches.

This isn’t my first shot of a dragonfly. You can find more here and here. And if you’re interested in damselflies you can find those shots here.

Pretty cool critters.
