    Beautifull shots. We are lucky these animals can sit still for a long time.
    Here are two of mine.

    You can find them near water and they like a variety of plants and trees.
    They also like to hang out in the sun.
    I used to only see them when you don't need them, so to speak, but you can really find them. And they can sit still for a long time. Sometimes they fly up to land the next second in almost exactly the same place on your focus screen.

    Very good and the background colours in the other ones are remarkable.

    Like this thread :-)
    Just go my Panagor 90mm macro Friday and Saturday, the weather was nice, so i went hunting... Dragonflies luckily are patient models :-) Good for familiarizing with a new lens. All free hand.
