Another hawker dragonfly visited yesterday.
All natural light/fill flash shots except #5 (full flash). This one did the opposite of the previous visitor and hung up on a cane about 1 foot above the ground.

biology, actually biochemistry, but i am very keen in bugs and stuff like that, so thats why I spend quite a lot of time in the macro section, it is always cool to see how it actually look in a real living creature :)

Fantastic shots. You are so luck you can get close to them. I can only find them in the day when they are too active.

These were taken around 11am - they seem to like having a rest in my garden :)
