"Shots along the greenway"


Germantown, US
          

Went walking on the greenway near our house and found a few good subjects. I am no entomologist, so I would love to know if this is a dragonfly or some other species.

Thanks for looking

Howard

Nice shots. The first is a dragonfly; a male pondskimmer I believe

Do not settle for mediocrity. Rather strive for excellence for even in that attempt lies a measure of success.

Thanks! I thought it was a dragonfly, but I've seen some blue damselflies, and wasn't sure.

Thanks! It was bright midday sun, so the light is a little harsh,but it did help brighten the colors on the flowers. The colors aren't enhanced except increasing saturation a little on the dragonfly because it was overexposed and washed out, and I was trying to get the color close to what it was in real life.
