Up Close Getting Hairy!

Hairy Dragonfly

Brachytron pratense

Yesterday (Monday) with the sun shining and very little wind I made another visit to Westbere Lakes to see what dragonflies were around. I saw good numbers of Variable Damselfly with lesser numbers of Blue tailed and a couple of Azure Damselflies but most of my time was spent with a male Hairy Dragonfly, 1 of 3 that was seen during my walk. I spent some time watching where it was patrolling and occasionally it would come to rest enabling me to get some pleasing shots with the Sigma 150mm macro lens. A Red eyed Damselfly and Banded Demoiselle were seen by another observer so hopefully my next visit will produce a few sightings of these, and more chances with the camera.

  3. Marc............... WOW!
    This is a very impressive series, one of the dragons I would wish to see at last!
    Your mastery of this new lens was quick and is so effective!
    You had enough light for a good Depth of Field.... absolute perfection!
    Sincere congratulations!
