A shot from Earlier in the year, in my experience Dragonflies pretty much hate each other most of the time lol, so it was amazing to see two different species (Four-spotted chaser and Emperor Dragonfly) on the same perch at the same time, Dragonflies appear to be creatures of habit and come back to the same perch over and over again, in the end I got them both in the same shot.
I used a 500mm + 1.4x, so was a long way away, I shot this in horizontal and have cropped a tiny bit from the top and bottom (and more from the sides).
Thanks for looking, cheersSmile
