Beautiful shots, FG!I tried to get some of dragon flies over the summer but I couldn't get any good ones.
Those are some pretty amazing pictures. Blessings,Ruth
Beautiful DragonFly collection of various colour.I only see the red one here.
Dragonflies - Very nice shots, Mr Fishing Guy!!! I really like them all!!!
So many beautiful dragonflies - love the variety you showed!
I love your blog. Dragonflys are one of my favorite insects. The photos are beautiful.I and hubby used to fish often. We even owned a Bass Tracker boat while Florida residents. We haven't fished of late, but all the nice photos remind me of how much fun it is. Thanks for sharing.Happy New Year!Sparky ♥ ∞
Wonderful! This was my first year for dragonflies, too and now I'm hooked on them...so lovely and delicate! I love that red one and didn't see any of those here.
Great pictures, Tom... Happy New Year.Hugs,Betsy
I love capturing these in photographs. They seem so fragile. This is a wonderful variety Tom. Thanks for sharing.
Interesting insects and hard to photograph! They don't stay still long. Great shots!
Beautiful pictures, Tom. I wish I could get macros like these.
Lots of variety. You did very well for your first year. They are just as addictive as the birds and butterflies. My problem is I want to know the names and can't figure it out. Looks like your photos are good enough to be able to....time permitting. :)
all superb captures!!!
... and you did a wonderful job on these critters. happy new year again FG.
Now this is a perfect post!! As you know, the dragons are my passion. Enjoyed seeing your Skimmers and Meadowhawks(one of my faves), I love the macro as well. Great shots!
Oh wow... you have some amazing dragonflies, I have not captured too many this year. They seem to be scarce around the lakes or the fish were mighty hungry and gobbled them up before I got a chance... heh.Very beautiful photos!~Michele~(hug)
I have a couple of shots that are like your's. I like to see these and also damsel flies.I don't have a lot to say about last year or this new year. Some thoughts...I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama -- at least I hope so. I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere. It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests. And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death. What a world we have and live in. 2009 could be so much better than it will be.
Wow! You really found a lot of them. Great shots!
Fishing Guy, 2008 is the year that you turned into wildlife photographer extraordinaire! Keep up the good photography in 2009. Hug the 8 grandkids, kiss the 4 kids and love the wife in 2009 and keep on fishing and posting.Joann and Jack doing the polka for New Years Eve!
I love photographing the dragons too, we have a ton of them around here in the summer. Love to watch them fly around with the purple martins. I don't believe I have ever seen a red one though.
Happy new year to you FG!! I hope to read all about your exploits next year.
Those are fine macros! Terrific color and detail.You're having such fun. HNY 2009!
Great results in these macro photographs, Fishing Guy. Amazing images indeed.I wish you a wonderful and peaceful New Year!
i cannot believe you have so many different kinds there, magnificent shots. happy new year fg.
Have a Great New Year My Friend!Looking forward to your photos of 2009!
Oh, FG, love these macro shots!! and the detail you captured in those dragon fly wings..wonderful. You have quite a collection of these beauties!
Awesome pics-more that make me jealous! You have such a good eye for getting the best shots.
Wow! Great dragon pictures, fishing guy!Your macro work results are very impressive. If you haven't got already, I recommend "Dragonflies through Binoculars - A Field Guide to Dragonflies of North America" by Sidney W. Dunkle to put names to them.In the meantime here's my .02 about their IDs from the top to bottom. I am happy to be corrected!1. Widow Skimmer Libellulla luctuosa - adult male2. Blue Dasher Pachydiplax longipennis - adult male3. Twelve-spotted Skimmer Libellula pulchella - adult female4. Meadowhawk species Sympetrum sp. (possibly Ruby M. Sympetrum rubicundulum)5. Common Whitetail Libellula lydia adult male.6. Widow Skimmer Libellula luctuosa -adult female 7. Eastern Amberwing Perithemis tenera - adult female.
Wow fishing guy, you have a lot of cool varieties of Dragonflies. You have done an excellent job in bringing out their natural beauty.
