Came across this beautiful dragonfly on one of our Papaya tree leaves. It was very cooperative and sat there for quite a while. I didn’t notice until I loaded the photos, that it’s missing a leg…maybe that is why it sat still for so long? I just find the details of its body so interesting and the see-thru wings are so delicate looking.
My settings were ISO 800 (really need to check my ISO more often), f/11, 1/40 sec, with my 100mm Pentax macro. Applied Topaz’s Adjust 5 Pop Photo filter about 1/2 strength.
