Head on Shot of a Migrant Hawker Dragonfly

By Hoverflylover
I'm very much addicted to dragonflies and during the dragonfly season I try my hand at capturing in-flight images. Some of the varieties of dragonflies rarely hover in my experience but these Migrant Hawkers, given the right environment (this location was a large pond with dense reeds that the dragonflies flew over) do hover for a good few seconds enabling you to hopefully catch an in-focus shot.

Really sad I have run out of awards because this shot should qualify for one. David

Enhanced by a beautiful, out of focus background.
