Dragon & Fly

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 27 February 2014 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Taken back in the summer

Canon EOS 500D 1/1600 second F/10.0 ISO 400 300 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Fabulous close up Doug! Beautiful color and detail! I like the shadow's of his wings on the wood. The fly is so small when compared to the dragonfly. I wonder what they were thinking!
