Camera Critters #77

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

Their were a pair of dragonflies in my Ohio Buckeye Tree. I could see them flying around the area so I got some close shots.
They were a neat brown color to match the tree.
They were a lot of fun to capture with one being a mover and the other staying put. I really enjoyed the show as they flitted from limb to limb. They were probably resting after travelling a far way.
Check out all the critters from above.

I'm always amazed at dragonfly and damsel fly photos. I can never find them when they are staying still to have a photo made! Well done!

Spectacular focus! I clicked to enlarge, and enjoyed the amazing detail in their faces.

Gaelyn said...

Excellent captures of the damselfly. I rarely see any and they are so fast.

Hi Tom, How's the fishing this weekend??? We've had more RAIN again--so you wouldn't want to be out in this weather if you were here.

Love the Dragonfly pictures. We had one inside the house this week. George caught it and took it back outside... Who knows!!!

Have a great weekend.

Wonderful shots of the dragonflies. I can never make them stay still for me, they are always on the move. Thanks for sharing your critters.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
Great Camera Critters photos.
I also enjoyed your older posts on black squirrels. I've only gotten the chance to see one in Benezette. I didn't get a snapshot, just a little video. They are very interesting to me, since we don't have them in our area.

Joy said...

Gosh these photos are outstanding!

Rose said...

great captures, Fishing Guy!

Teresa said...

Very cool photos!

Janie said...

Great captures of the dragonflies. I'm glad they stayed still for you!

SandyCarlson said...

These are gorgeous photos. These critters make me think of scribes with stooped shoulders somehow. They might not be flattered to know that. They do an incredible balancing act.

Squirrel said...

Nice photo. I couldn't tell what species it is but I do know it is a female. It could be a Wandering Glider, they fly late in the season.

Denise said...

Those are really neat shots of the dragonfly.

Pietro said...

Tom, you've photographed these dragonflies so well! Those transparent wings are astonishing!

Carletta said...

Very neat Fishing Guy!
This is the first summer I've tried to photograph these guys and they aren't always so cooperative.

Tulip said...

I am always fascinated by these but seldom see them. Your photos are excellent.

Tipper said...

Amazing detail on the wings! Love the new banner-what a shot.

Misty Dawn said...

These shots are AWESOME Tom! I miss having a Buckeye tree! We moved one here with us, but it didn't make it :-(
