Hay and the Dragonfly


DOL-A-5012
Band winged Meadowhawk Dragonfly

This photo was taken using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide-Angle lens.  My intention was to capture a shot of square bales spread across the field.  The dragonfly was clinging to... you guessed it, a piece of straw on the bale of hay.

Two excellent shots. You must have been very close to the dragonfly.
PS: I just purchased a Sigma 10 - 20mm wide angle lens for my Canon. I'm very happy with the results.

I take a lot of pictures of hay for some reason and yours is great. The dragonfly was such a great bonus!

I like both shots, so speaks of summer... Thanks for sharing on WTS this week!
Both of them are beautiful clear shots. I love the way hay looks in a field like that.
