Common Green Darner

Anax junius

Description:

I have a pretty good sports mode on my camera and I caught this guy in flight and it held focus very well. I was very excited to see just how clear he came out. His legs are tucked up tight under him in flight and the sun just shines bronze on his wings.

It's been so long since I posted this guy that I hadn't realized he needed up dating. Whew - thanks for that heads up! and the kind words.

Good DiFs, "KatCuff" -- dragonflies in flight photos, that is! Since Gordon correctly identified your subject, I suggest you update the spotting accordingly. Don't overlook the "Tags" -- they are useful when searching the PN database.

Thanks Joseph - I love dragonflies and was very psyched when I saw what was there.
