Dragonflies, A Bumble Bee….Oh And A Needlefish!
I spent a couple morning hours two different days in the past month, trying my luck again with the dragonflies hanging around the embankment at the end of Cambridge Creek.
Definitely a challenging subject. And definitely a tremendous number of dumped files. 🙂
Except for the Blue Dasher, I had to research each of these to ID. If I incorrectly identified any, please let me know!
I couldn’t resist this bumble bee buzzing around me….
While shooting the dragonflies, I saw something dart in the water and spotted a Needlefish. I had seen them before this summer but always missed any shot. This one made the photo-shoot cut, ha!

Dragonflies are definitely great practice to improve your photography skills of patience and steadiness. 🙂
