Blue Eyes..............babies got blue eyes by 

This dragon fly sat very still while I took as many images as I could, before he flew off to another leaf, out of sight. I found him while walking a nature trail in Gin Gin, Western Australia.

Fuji F6500 camera, hand held, no editing, slight cropping, otherwise as is from camera

    WOW! What a fantastic macro shot! Well done!

  • Thanks again Cheryl. I’m very proud of the image. It was hard to get this close and I almost fell in the stream, but it was worth it to get this close LOL

    Oh wow what a great shot i did try all year to get one . . oh well there is this year lol

  • Thanks, I had to be very very patient and move very very slowly to get this close. I’m lucky that my camera has a magnifying option on it that enables me to get in real close without getting in toooo close so as to frighten them away. I find these creatures incredible and love taking their pictures
