Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 10th September, 2008)
Totally amazing piccy, yet again.
Smile? It scared the living daylights out of me:o) Brilliant though.
Dave, how long did it take you to get this amazing photo?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:-
The Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum) is a dragonfly of the family Libellulidae native to Eurasia. It is one of the most common dragonflies in Europe, occurring in a wide variety of water bodies, though with a preference for breeding in still water such as ponds and lakes. Adults are on the wing from June until November - occasionally into December.
Is it Eric Bristow? :-) Great photo!
Looks like radar on its head,Dave.Some of my bee close ups appear to have as many eyes as a spider.The eyes of an insect seem to be far more complex than our own.Yes, it is a truly professional mug shot.
Dave, again I am most impressed by your photo today. Where did you take it, we get them on Scotmans flash flyjng alongside the boats when sailing. Great shot.
This was sitting on a fence at Martin Mere WWT at Burscough. It took a few minutes to carefully set up my tripod and work progressively closer until I got close enough for this shot.
o.m.g i jumped out my seat !!!
A truly amazing photograph, you must have some camera there Dave.
