To bring photos from my minds eye - to the public through the lens of my Nikon D90 ∧ D80
Splendid the photograph, marvellous colours, and the nerves in his feathers are impressive! Afterwards certain weeks will fill my region from these insects.
How do you know that it's an old insect, did you see her bus pass?
Blimey, I've just been away knitting socks and you've been all over the country.Was that dragonfly out at the weekend, it will be frozen to death by next weekend I fear
Ok so how do you know that is an elderly dragonfly?I love the close up shot of her. Oh and how can you tell if its a she? I am so full of questions huh?
To answer your questions,The Elderly Dragon Fly was taken a few years ago at Woodland Waters, near Grantham.I sent the photo to a insect expert, who says it was an elderly female, as it has lost most of her colour.
Beautiful shot, iMac - and the texture of the wings is great.
Terrific closeup. I love the transparent wings and the various shadings.
wonderful capture. I have always been interested in this insect. When I was a boy I would always see them in the summer. I love the close up on the design of the wing. Great shot.
Neat! How wonderful that you knew who to send to for identification.
ha! Quote: "I sent the photo to a insect expert, who says it was an elderly female, as it has lost most of her colour".No differance there then... :O)
nice photo! interesting, when a dragonfly ages he/she loses his/her colour. science of dragonflies!!
I LOVE dragonflies! Glad you told us how you can tell she's elderly! I didn't realize that the more colorful ones are younger. I"ll remember that. I can't wait until they come around again. I got my first shot of one last year.
