COMMON DARTERS AT COTTAM.

Over the last couple of weeks I`ve been trying to photograph common darter dragonflies at Cottam,there`s been about 40-50  of these dragonflies on the wing and I`ve  been trying different methods of attack to capture images,chasing,sitting down and waiting or selecting a nice perch and hoping.Concentrating on getting better composition and clear background I`ve been very selective of the kind of image I wanted.All the images I`ve posted are taken with a canon 100mm macro with no is hand held,on occasions with stealth I could get very close to the dragonflies and have posted a few of my efforts below.
