I was sat in the Ron Barker hide at Martin Mere watching the thousands of Pink-footed Geese the other week, when I noticed quite a few dragonfly still about. I'm not saying I was bored, but my attention was turned to watching these majestic dragonflies for several minutes.
These were the Southern Hawker variety. One of the more common species in this country and indeed across Europe.
I've never photographed one in flight, but this one stopped outside the hide long enough for me to get a focus on it and push the button.
Nothing like this beautiful creature to take your eyes off the Pink footed geese! What a stunning image. thanks for sharing. JoReplyDelete

Beautiful shot! Dragonflies kinda creepy me out a bit when I look at them closely. As long as I don't pay a lot of attention, we're good ;)ReplyDelete
