Dragonfly Smile

Yes, this is the same red eyed dragonfly I shared yesterday.  I just love this little dude.  Look at his mouth.  I swear he is smiling.  See the “toothy” grin?


Taken with my Canon 7D and 50mm 1.8 lens with macro attachments +1 and +2 attached.  Aperture: f/7.1, shutter speed: 1/125, ISO: 640 (I had to bump it up to get the exposure good for the shutter speed and aperture I needed).  I was probably about 6 or 7 inches from him.


and<br /> then, she {snapped}


  1. Great shot!! You know, nowadays everytime I see a bee or another bug while shooting flowers, I think of you :-) One day I'll get a perfect shot too..

  2. Wow, great shot. He's very photogenic!

  3. They would make a lovely set on metallic photo paper. It does look like he is smiling!

  4. That is amazing! And, I agree, it does look like he is smiling!

  5. FABULOUS! What a great capture..lucky lady to geet two wonderful dragonfly shots. Here's to YOU smiling this afternoon! Hang in there.
