Libelle. by Anoya Libelle. by Anoya
I was sitting on my roof terrace for a bit earlier today when I suddenly noticed a dragonfly that's been hanging around my plants more often. I got closer and it didn't move at all, so I ran inside and grabbed my camera, hoping it would still be there when I got back. And it was! It was actually posing for me, since I got quite a few good shots from several angles. I think I liked this best (for now at least!)

this is definately a  perfect shot,

i love how the angle makes the body lines look very solid, but the rest of the body look almost transparent :D

I have seen some of them in the last few days. Love them! But it's so hard to make them stand still in front of you :D
Glad it was still there, when you returned :la:

This is lovely. It even looks like the body is a bit transparent, is that so? :O I didn't know!

Anoya Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2014   Photographer
I'd think it would be more of a reflection, but I've been staring at it for a while now and it looks like there are some 'veins', so.. I'm not sure! :O

Maybe it's both! Some veins shimmering through but the general glimmer from reflection! :nod:
