Chasing the Dragons

Strangely come 4.30 this afternoon after a day out hunting images and having endured further torment in front of the tv screen, I felt like shooting something. Rather than wait for two dozen plonkers and an Iyti to fly past I headed up to Banks pond, set the camera to Gatling setting and turned the handle.

Please be assured non of the dragonflies were harmed during this outburst although one took to the water. I'm sure this was for reproductive rather than digestive purposes. Meanwhile the four spotted chasers were not living up to their name but I suppose shimmering is just as good.


  1. That last Emperor pic`s a cracker Peter. The flight shots are excellent too. Must try and get up there soon (maybe tomorrow with any luck)...
