Dragonfly ~ Blue Dasher (Female) by 


7-15-10

Taken in Tucson, Arizona @ Sweetwater Wetlands using a Canon Powershot SX10IS

Blue Dashers (Skimmer Family)
Blue Dash is abundant in the East, less so in the Southwest where standing water is limited. This dainty, pale blue species is a familiar inhabitant of still waters surrounded by reeds or cattails. Watch for it at wildlife-refuge ponds, the edges of lakes created for water treatment or fishing and even back-yard lily ponds.

Territorial males take prominent perches, often stems bent over the water, from which they frequently dart out to chase of intruders.

The snow white face of this species distinguishes it from the similar Western Pond-hawk with which its frequently occurs: note: the Pond-hawk’s bright green face and habit of perching on the ground.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
