Nice one Todd. Looks like your neighborhood is "spring"ing to life. Dragonflies make great subjects.

I love this one, Todd. The detail is perfect and the sun beaming through the gossamer wing is very cool.

Very nice shot. They are so hard to photograph. They never sit still for me.

Nice. I have glimpsed 2 this year. I walked over rocks today that will be swarming with them in a month.

Good one, Todd. Very Sharp. Amazing how well the 55-300 PLM does these kinds of close-ups.

I was gonna say, not your first shot of one, that's for sure. I like the black on the wings. We have some good variety up north. Really looking forward to seeing them this year with my KP.

Thanks Jer! This one kept coming back to this stick inviting me to take a photo.

Thanks PJ1! I find that if you watch where they land and stake it out, they will repeatedly come back to the spot. I have actually touched one with my camera hood before.

Thank you! I hope that you get out and take some photos of them.

Thanks K2 to K50! You can't say enough about the 55-300 PLM. It almost always comes through.
