Default Dragonflies

While visiting in the north-east of NSW we went out photographing frogs at night, and among other things, dragonflies during the day. These are, I believe, various Percher dragonflies.

# 1 Shenanigans on a lily-pad


# 2


# 3


# 4


# 5


# 6


#7 Waterlily, dragonfly, bonus bug


To be honest, I think it was far easier to get photos of the frogs than of the dragonflies!

Cheers

Great shots and great details. I always wondered why the wings are transparent except for that one brown cell.

Thank you jj and you too loren. Yes, the coloured cells are a bit of a puzzle loren and I don't think all dragonflies have them.

Cheers

Thank you Dyane & Jeff. If the weather would only warm up we might be able to out and add to our collection.

Glad you like them.
