With an open topic for this week’s Macro Moments Challenge, I’ve chosen this image of a dragonfly feasting on a stem of tiger grass by our pond. Note the delicacy of the lace structure of the wings; there’s also some wear and tear on a couple of the blue plates that cover the abdomen.
Nikon D800, 70-200mm f2.8 lens at 200mm. 1/250 at f8, ISO400. Cropped and adjusted in Lightroom.
Gorgeous shot! Thanks for entering the challenge this week!
WOW!! What a beauty, cracking capture!! Thanks for sharing
Thank you. It was worth the wait – eventually.

Smashing shot. Do you know the species, by chance?
Thanks. No idea of the species, I’m afraid. I just do the point and click bit.
Fair enough. We have several species around our pond and there is a Blue Emperor that I have not managed to snap.Not yet, at any rate!
It looks similar to the one in your photo.
