Darter dragonflies mating on the rotary clothes line. I had to try and thread the camera and flash through the washing lines for these.

Pity about the surroundings, but as I say, you take what nature gives you. Good shots nevertheless! I still have only witnessed this act once :( Have you had any luck with Robberflies yet?

Lovely shots, agree with what Dave says, you have to take what nature gives you for your pics.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone, much appreciated :).
I don't often spot these mating, so had to take some shots.

Dave - no I don't think robberflies like salt air :)

Bill - as usual all of these have some focus stacking.

Thanks Bill :)

The hard bit was threading the camera through so the the lines didn't twang and disturb the DFs.

Hiya Brian,

Excellent shots as always!! never thought about Robbers not liking salt air, maybe thats why I don't get em here also:confused:we are probably the same distance from the cost as you are

Cheers for now
