Macro Monday - Stalking Dragonflies

Our pasture has a good size pond that is teeming with life - frogs, turtles, fish, dragonflies and damselflies. I spent about an hour in the late afternoon stalking dragonflies.  It was difficult to get really good shots of them since they were flitting around, hunting bugs. The late afternoon light made their wings glow.

ou are right Dragonflies and the like are very hard to photograph. I try though and yours are extremely beautiful.
