In my excitement over my pond I forgot to mention that I went window shopping for lenses on Saturday and called in at the dragonfly pond on my way home. It was before ten and although bright it was quite cool. Even so the usual common darters were around but nothing else that I saw. No doubt they were flying later when the day heated up.
I managed to get close to a couple, choosing to forgo the flash and take a chance on hand holding with available light. Apart from the rather cluttered background this one is quite nice.
It won't be long before the dragonflies are no more for another year. Time to start looking for winter visitors of the feathered variety.
