Shower Time!

Shower Time!
At the beginning of the season, I couldn't get near these Dragonflies but now, every time I visit the pond, one seems to be waiting for me! On a cloudy day, nothing much seemed to be happening but as the clouds opened, I spotted this male Broad Bodied Chaser. He sat as the rain soaked us both and I even had time to move distracting grass stalks from the shot and try different apertures as I took shots from 6 inches away!

Jeanne, Cathy Oetegenn (trying to catch up....), Peter, Kathleen Thorpe-BUSY have particularly liked this photo

This will sound a little crazy, but I am so envious of shots like this. The only insects in our area of the world would not be good subjects for a photograph ... {:o)
