Spotted Spreadwing

Lestes dryas

(Teneral male)


Livingston Co, MI

A storm was blowing in, so you can imagine how this ~1.5" fellow was swaying.  Still, when I saw that he was on the grass heads against a clean background, I had to give it a go.  I'm glad I didn't have to pay for film developing!


100-400 4.5-5.6 II

1/400, f/8

iso 1600

Hand held, natural light

Significant crop

Comments and suggestions always welcome.

Edit: Does anyone know how to format posts so that when I hit "enter" I don't get a space between lines, as if I were starting a new paragraph?
Good light,

Lovely photograph - the grass is an airy, delicate perch.
