Calico Pennant

Here is a different flier for me. This lovely dragonfly was kind enough not to fly away as I was taking his picture. He did reposition himself though. I was within a few feet of this guy. He was in the same area as the first two butterflies that I took pictures of that day. I believe that this dragonfly is called a Calico Pennant. He was much easier to narrow down. There are not near the amount of dragonflies and damselflies as there are butterflies and moths.

I have never photographed dragonflies before but after viewing them on a few of the blogs that I read regularly - Virtua Gallery and The Ohio Nature Blog. So when I saw this guy I thought why not and gave it a shot. I am very pleased with my results. Also I am learning that the camera I have at the moment is great for shooting these macro type shots. This is great for me since I enjoy the close up shots.

In my world, dragonflies are a much easier capture than butterflies. I actually have a couple of dragonfly shots. I've never seen this one, however. I like his reddinh body and blackish wings. Unusual!

I've been finding the dragonflies more & more interesting as I've viewed them on other blogs - I like the one you captured very much!
