Totally Amateur Photography … June 2012
Bugs & Animals on Flowers/Foliage in Macro … June 2014

This Australian Emperor Dragonfly did not seem to mind as I enjoyed his prolonged rest on one of the Hoyas
in my garden at Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia.

    wow! what a macro!! excellent!!! you need to put this in Extreme Close ups and Super Macro photography such great clarity…. fun to see them up close like this… I’m amazed he stayed long enough for this capture… I’ve tried to photograph dragonflies but they never stay in one place long enough for my skills…. wow this is excellent!

  • Thank you so much Jan, for your wonderful comments and fave. This was pretty much a first for me, as they usually don’t stop, so I made the most of his visit. I was quite surprised how long he stayed! I’ll look at Super Macro photography, the shot has now been approved in Extreme Close-ups. Thanks.
