While hanging out with the Heron at the Chattahoochee River yesterday, the place was abuzz with dragonflies. I have to confess, before picking up a camera a couple of years ago, I found these creatures to be a bit disconcerting. The way they would dart and dash and dive made me think of them as overgrown bees; but now that they have become fodder for photography, I find them fascinating!
Here is one fellow that briefly paused to pose.
Isn’t that face the absolute definition of bug-eyed!

YAY! You got photos of dragonflies!! 😃😊😍 I like your photos much better! My dragonfly landed on my knee so you see my wrinkled skin. Lol! 😉
I didn’t get a ton of time with them since I had been hanging out with the Heron. I want to go back and try and get some more shots. They are so cool!
Very graceful critter. You captured it well. I’ve noticed that dragonflies seem to frequently be the inspiration for jewelry, like pins. So apparently a lot of people find them interesting.
They really are graceful. And I can see why that long straight body would make for the perfect pin shape. 🙂
These are great!
OMG Kath! These photos belong in National Geographic! Bravo! I don’t ever recall seeing such detail as this!!! 🙂
You make me smile!
He’s a handsome fella…
Some very nice photos! Love those big green eyes!
Aren’t they fascinating!
Seriously. Your work is amazing, Kathy. These things used to creep me the heck out; I’ll have to try looking at them differently now. 😉
Wonderful pictures! Love the phrase “fodder for photography.” Your love of alliteration is showing!
I am addicted to alliteration and half the time have to go back and do some un-alliterating to make my posts more palatable for others!
I can chase these fellas all day and not get a decent close-up. Great steady hands!
You know how it is…for every one I posted there were ten that I trashed! Those buggers are fast!
