Male Blue Dasher Dragonfly

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.

Big Eyes on this Blue Dasher

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.
