|Ryan’s Field Notes #17 – Dragonfly|
|Hope this edition finds you all well. I know myself, the ongoing challenges of current life is really dragging me down. |
I hope you are holding up mentally and physically to the interesting times we find our selves in.
Needing a break from everyday life the family and I took a quick afternoon trip up to a small fishing pond about an hour away from the house.
Lately I haven’t been getting away up into the wonderful mountains but we knew it was a much needed escape.
It was a wonderful still afternoon (there has been so much wind here lately so that was very refreshing).
We set up all of the fishing poles and the family had a nice relaxed afternoon of fishing. It was great.
After fishing for a while I pulled out the camera to capture something unique.
I watched the dragonflies playing across the top of the water for a while and chose them as today’s subject.
What good nature/wildlife photographer doesn’t have at least a few cool images of dragonflies, right? 🙂
Their brilliant metallic coloring and unique bodies are so intriguing.

|They were mesmerizing to watch as they zipped around just inches above the water.|
Occasionally landing on the aquatic grasses they would perch for a moment and they fly off again in pursuit of their prey (they eat a lot of mosquitos).
|It ended up being a pretty good day. Lot’s of fish, wonderful family time and the beauties of nature.|
