More Blue-faced Meadowhawk

Batch 2 (of 4). Please look at the full-size version of each photo.

Several male Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonflies (Sympetrum ambiguum) were spotted near a vernal pool at a remote location in Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA.

The last photograph is my favorite in this batch. Which photo is your favorite?

    My fav is the middle one because I like the angle, the blue head area is captured beautifully, and I love the wing detail. While I quickly figured out my fav, it took lots of comparing to figure out the reasons why! They’re lovely photos!

  2. Mike Powell Says:

    My favorite is probably the second one, primarily because of the angle of view. I also like the way in which the leaves of the plant on which the dragonfly is perched are pointed in all different angles, unlike the other two images, in which they are all pointed more or less in the same direction.

      Good point Mike … I had another look at the photos and those leaves “pointed in all different angles” make the image look much more three-dimensional than the other two shots!

    My favorite one is the top one because that strand of spider silk adds a bit of tension.
