Dragonfly

ISO 1000, 1/800 sec at f/7.1, 70mm lens on my D800.

Taken at Fen Drayton, this dragonfly – a Migrant Hawker Dragonfly (I think) – landed on a plant beside a footpathand stayed there for a while, apparently just sunning himself. It even stayed long enough for me to change the lens on my camera to a 70mm macro, and for me to capture several images of this beautiful creature.

I’m particularly pleased with this image – pleased, that is, apart from the annoying highlight on the side of his head.
