Default Dragonfly

Some dragons I caught today at my favourite hunting spot. Macro mode, no additional lens lens attached.

These are terrific, Raghu! You are lucky to have so many of these guys close to you! The shallow DOF brings out their beauty in #1 and #2. The last one is really great!

Raghu,

really great shots, my favority is #5.
For me #2 has a little bit confusing angle.

Cheers,

Stefan

Wow Raghu, those are some excellent macro shots you have got there. Makes it hard to pick a favourite, I love the first shot as its so delicate looking - great colour and clarity ......... but then again this goes for all of the shots.

Thank you, all, for looking and for the comments. Stefan, some dragons sit this way, their wings folded at stooped angle.
