To Ride a Dragonfly's Wing

Many, many moons ago, I was a field tech for an Entomology professor.  I was asked to go take photos of the trees at the field sites.  I got to play with the Canon with a macro lens!  And of course I abused the privilege, and took some pictures for me.  Some cool bugs were flying around the swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata), and I snapped a few.  Here's the dragonfly, and it seems he's giving his friend a lift.

You can tell this is a homemade image by the really poor focusing and the questionable composition.  But, hey, it's all I got at the moment.  It a big image, but you have to click to see that.

  2. Thanks Paula, that's nice to hear. I'm afraid I'm just not very good at putting stuff on this blog. Maybe I can improve, though.
