Damselfly on the Rocks
Lens: Sigma 50-500mm f4.5-6.3 EX DG OS HSM Camera: Pentax K-3II Photo Location: Virginia along the Rappahannock ISO: 640 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: MikeyBugs95, 10-06-2019, 05:10 PM

I was walking along the shore on the Rappahannock and there were dragonflies and damselflies flying everywhere. I focused on this one for most of the time I was on this little outcropping of rocks.

Thanks, these guys would actually sit for a minute or two at a time them scurry away and come back to almost the exact same spot as before unless I got too close. It was really fun trying to photograph these guys and I'm a bit disappointed we don't have as many up here in New York.

Nice image. That has been my experience with dragonflies and damselflies. If you get one that wants to be at one spot, they will continuously come back to it even when you get too close. I had one let me get within about a foot with my lens one time.
