These are small dragonflies.No more than 2" fore and aft.There are some big ones in the area at least 4 times bigger that I hope to get later.I cleaned my sensor today and was apprehensive about doing it but It did work really well with the swabs.--charliezap

Great job Charlie, that flash/macro combo you are using is working. Even with the crop, no loss of clarity. I still haven't seen an insect in the last 4 months here in the desert, not even a fly. Bob

Ah, you got em - find any plant with green leaf's, look very very closely (I have to put on glasses when I am looking) on the leaf's and you will see something. If you don't see something right away, be patient and hang out for a bit you will see something

I haven't even seen a plant with green leaves, but in the desert where temps are often 110 to 120 F, 3 inches of rain a year, you can understand why. We will be in Colorado by early October, so I will put the glasses on and take a walk. take care. Bob

This time of year the bug world is quite active with a lot of them preparing for the winter.I see the real big dragonflies around the yard but they don't seem to land and hang around like the small ones do.--charliezap
