Lazing On a Sunny Afternoon

Uploaded: October 20, 2003


This is an Eastern Pondback dragonfly, taken at Longwood Gardens, Pennsylvania, in June 2003. This fellow is in the "obelisk" position to help cool him as he rests in the sun. The shot was taken around noon, full sun, with flash, and with auto exposure.

Jay, This is a good pose. I like your descriptions which are educational.
As I can see in your gallery you do wonderful nature images. What a creation God made. I am in awe!
About the Pondback, you captured the colours very well, and this classic pose is super.

Keep up the great work!
