"In the still water of the fountains one saw the splash of human faces, ignited by these gold and scarlet stars as they rose hissing into heaven like thirsty swans." from Justine by Lawrence Durrell.

I made this image in July at the Brushy Creek Sports Park. If you go early in the cool of the morning the dragonflies are out in large numbers but as the day heats up they tend to disappear. They're funny creatures - they may light on a branch like this and then immediately fly away but if you wait a few minutes they come back to the same spot. So all I had to do was pre-focus on the branch and wait.
So a tripod helps. Your mileage (patience) may vary.

Tech Info: Nikon D7000 lens 18-135 at 135mm (202mm equivalent in full frame) shot in shutter priority at 1/200th - ISO 200 - f8 with an exposure bias of -0.3.

Thanks for stopping by.
