Spent the morning working a neighborhood pond. It takes time to sit still and look for the tiny life forms all around us in nature.
Equipment used: Nikon F2, AF Nikkor 70-300D for most pictures, and AF Micro Nikkor 105mm lens for close-ups.
First photographic subject was a red dragonfly never seen before. Dragonfly had a large dark pink body. Our picture inventory already has large blue body dragonflies, large green body dragonflies, and small tomato red dragonflies.
Other subjects were damselfly, baby fish, and various pond creatures.
Photo Tip: Want to make a picture of dragonflies? Find a dragonfly sitting on a twig or plant. It will probably move before you can make your picture. Don’t chase it. Position yourself and wait for another to land on the same twig or plant.
