Hi everyone, hope your week is going well.

Sticking with my macro/wildlife today, but back to Provence for this one.
This was on our first day in Provence, we were checking out an old barn, when Alison spotted this Dragonfly perched on top of the grass. It was mid-day and the sun was in full swing, so the lights a tad harsh.

Thanks to Madbob for the loan of his 150 Sigma, itís a very nice lens and allows you to stand back from the subject matter compared to my 105.

Cropped the image top and bottom, I thought it suited a pano.

Thanks for looking.

Big is better.

Have a great day.

Alan
