Who knew dragonflies were so hairy?

Click through to the full resolution 3000x2000 one.

Micro lenses are alot of fun. Too bad they have pretty much no depth of field close in. Next time I'll have to try this from a tripod. Too many of them just weren't quite focused where I wanted.

Nice shot, was that taken in the fall? Just asking because of the red leaf.

Just shot it this past Saturday late morning. They were strangely fearless. 2 of them had landed on this "tree" that's only about 3' tall. I was able to walk right up to within 2-3' of them and they didn't care.

It wasn't bravado... dragon flies are generally pretty sluggish in the morning until the sun dries them a little. Morning dew doesn't phase us much, but its rough when you weigh the same amount as a paper clip.

I snapped this one last week. Focus is a little bit off, but I never knew they could be so.....blue.
