Hi Stephen

Not this time, just the bare lens at pretty much the close focus distance. It was unusual that the DF did not fly away as I slowly inched forward, they normally fly off even if I just look at them.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Autumn Meadowhawk, hearty fellows. I have never seen one in December in Indiana though; they are usually done in with the first killing frost, here, late October. More info:

"Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum) is a common late-season dragonfly. This is one of the most cold-hardy dragonflies in North America, frequently persisting into November or December during milder weather, provided nights don't drop far below freezing."

Thanks, very good to learn more about these interesting creatures!

Orthetrum villosovittatum... the whole dragonfly, and then a close-up of the eyes.
