Week 5, #3 Fill the Frame (Composition), Dragonfly

DSC_2487So I was sitting in my living room and I heard this loud noise on my porch.  I went out to investigate and found this dragonfly bopping around hitting everything on the porch: the light, the window, the door, the plants, even me!  I ran in to grab my camera and came back out.  He continued to fly and run into things for several minutes before he landed on one of my plants.  I was able to get a total of 3 images of him before he took off again, running into everything in sight.  He apparently flew through a spider’s web and got it stuck on his wings, freaking him out.  I was able to get him to land on me and I was able to get the spider web off of his wings.  He promptly flew away after I removed it.

This was the best of the three images I captured of him.  It is my submission for “Fill the Frame.”

    Not easy to get a pretty good shot of these guys, which you did, but to then have him to sit still enough for you to remove a spider’s web, well that’s amazing. I’m intrigued by the details.

      Thanks! I think he was either stunned from hitting his head so much, or completely exhausted from flying. He didn’t sit long, just long enough for me to grab the spider web and pull it off.
