Elusive Dragonflies



I'm calling these dragonflies elusive because looking at these pictures reminds me of the length of time that I had to wait under a searing sun. There were several red dragonflies and the vibrancy of the red stood out against the dying grass. as for the last photo, that's a Picture wing dragonfly that kindly deigned to stop for a moment.


All these pictures were taken about ten days ago at Deepor Beel,  the largest water body in our area.

whoa..elusive you say.. they are indeed.. You are good to be able to capture them and a clear and vibrant one at that! Awesome capture! :)

Gorgeous pictures! The Picture Wing looks like a cross between a drangonfly and a butterfly.

I thought the last one was a butterfly too! Lovely captures. I hope you didn't suffer the heat too much.

Thanks Kanak for taking these pics! Sorry for the heat. I love that yellow one. Never seen one with the colour before.

Great Captures, Kanak. I've been trying to get a good photo of a dragonfly and haven't yet succeeded. Now I see, I need to be more persistent, braving sun and rain.
