I used the Canon XSi DSLR with a 300 mm lens. I used a PL-CIR filter. I took this picture at historic Rock Ledge Ranch in Colorado Springs, Co.

    Beautiful capture of this dragonfly something I just dont seem to ever manage to be able to photo lol. Dave

  • It was about 100 degrees and, to be honest, I was swearing as I tried to focus on this dragonfly. I tried everything and did get a few good shots. It must have set there for 10 minutes. Thank you, Dave. xo

  • I was a near a pond and there were so many dansel/dragonflies. I saw a lot of them fying around together. This one really seemed to like this orange flower. Thank you very much for the comment and support. xoxo
