Male Blue Dasher dragonfly, Pachydiplax longipennis. I shot this guy with the big lens while I was chasing the Black-bellied Whistling-ducks (seen at the link). The males have the blue-green (cyan) colored eyes as shown here. The females have brown/reddish eyes as shown in the picture further down the page. BugGuide link here.
I like the detail in the eyes on this one, caught in relatively low light during the evening. Backyard, July 2016, Nikon D750, 200mm macro lens, f7.1, 1/640, ISO 1600. Full camera resolution.
Nikon D750 camera, 200mm f4 macro lens at f9 and 1/1250s, ISO 800. This one was hand-held in the back yard July 2016 and is presented at the full camera resolution.
Nikon D750 and Nikon D200 lens. I like the dark background on this one; it was difficult to nail the exposure here.
August 2016. Best shot of a female I have so far.
