This dragonfly was waiting for me on the deer trail after I left the scene from my last post with the deer. I felt at that moment that it must be my lucky day. And it was. This dragonfly zoomed about the area until it finally landed on this twig to give me a golden opportunity for pictures.
The only problem was that the Sun and the clouds weren't always cooperating, but they soon gave me just the right amount of light to get the pictures I wanted of this beautiful creature. And I really mean it, clickety clickety!
Then it struck me! I knew where I had seen it! Sharkbytes recently featured this same type of dragonfly over on her blog. Go over and take a look. Comments are a good thing too. She says the name of her type of dragonfly is the Widow Skimmer, so I'm assuming that's what this one is too.
The light actually helped me because I was able to get pictures with different lighting that came out very differently from each other. I got everything from blur to shadow, but I'll just share some that were closer to the middle
Deer trails, and places like them, are where the magic of nature really exists. As long as you respect them, they will share some of their magic with you.
