    Oh dear, it was worth a try but that's a tricky one to make a counter argument.

  • Not a great photo but it was a nice surprise to see what I think is a male Emperor dragonfly on our local walk today;   it was virtually at ground level behind a few grasses so couldn't get a decent pic of it before it flew off again.

  • Nice spot - I've only seen one so far this year and that never touched down.

  • Fabulous James showing the intricate pattern on the wings, just gorgeous.

    Lot to learn

  • Thanks Nige, can't say I have ever seen them myself before this sighting.

    @ Hazel, they are shame I did not have the 100mm macro lens on.

    @ Gaynor, they do have very nice patterns on their wings a macro shot would have shown the detail a lot better then the 400mm lens did.

    they look pretty good photos to me Jim even without macro lens.     Btw,  if you are still down in Cornwall can you get me photos from this area  -   but mind your step and don't look down  LOL

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if he's forgotten where he lives - every time you here from him, he's somewhere else this summer!!
