Common Whitetail Dragonfly - Male

This is a pretty good side/back view of a male Whitetail.  The camera angle allowed me to get most of the fly in focus.  Whitetails are plentiful in our front yard this year (2015), where we have a bumper crop of both dragonflies and mosquitoes.  Nikon D810A camera, 200mm f4 lens, 1/500s at f11, ISO 1600.

Male Common Whitetail Dragonfly

Thanks again to Gil for the ID: Common Whitetail (Plathemis lydia), adult male.  D810a camera and 200mm f4 lens.

Common Whitetail: Eyes Only

I like it when I can catch some detail in the compound eyes of bugs.  This a close up of a male Common Whitetail dragonfly.  Nikon D810a camera, 200mm f4 macro lens, f10, 1/320s, ISO 800.

Female Common Whitetail Dragonfly

For some reason these ladies seem to be very camera shy!  Nikon D810A camera and 200mm f4 lens at f8, 1/250s, ISO 500.

Female Common Whitetail Dragonfly - Full Camera Resolution Crop

Same as above, but full camera resolution on the Nikon D810A.
