Sorting Through The Shots


With the forecast for heavy rain from mid morning I did not venture out today but this afternoon gave me the chance to sort through hundreds of photos I have taken in the past few weeks. With the rain pounding the windows I thought I would select a few I have taken recently to share. I would like to say a big thank you for all the comments recently about the Common Blue close up shots I took, they definitely spur me on to go out and get some more. I think they are certainly my photos of the year so far and I think I will be hard pushed to beat them. I always try to go out with a photo or two in my mind and in this case I have tried for a few months to get this opportunity and thankfully it came around in the end. It's a shame that with the colder weather soon to return the dragonfly season will soon be coming to an end but I can't wait until next year, not only to add some species I have never seen before but to photograph these wonderful insects. It's taken me a few years to appreciate them but they make for some excellent photography. Hopefully I will be able to get out in the week although the weather does not look good at the moment. I hope you enjoy the shots below.

  4. There is still some time left for the dragons. Given the right conditions a couple of species can stay on the wing until November. We had such a lousy summer i feel slightly robbed of them, especially up here in the north east.

  6. Amazing sharpness!
    These pictures are a wonder!
    It is sad that the season is ending, now we will have to wait about 7 month for them to reappear!
    Cheers Marc!
