|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I'm going to see if I can get a book on Japanese dragonflies so that I can identify these fellows. Today I took lots of photos and have finally been able to achieve decent closeups, though it's still a bit of a hit and miss (mostly miss) affair. (Need a better digicam.)|
I saw a great variety of species today, including some extraordinary ones which I'd never seen before (need a better digicam). This particular one was make a clicking (or crunching) noise as it was eating something.
Two days ago as I was driving into Utsunomiya city, about an hour before sunset, there were thousands of dragonflies all flying southwards - interesting phenomenon, perhaps due to the getting-more-noticeable change over to autumn.
USM applied for sharpness, then cropped to fit on this site. The size of the dragonfly within the image hasn't changed.

The compo and details looks great. The details seem sharp. One question though, why did you decide on a smaller photo size?
nice sharp details,excellent
Good compo and good sharpness.

Great shot David and I must echo Gerhard, why didn't you use a bigger picture - it is very good.
As for the ID you can bet your bottom dollar it is a Symetrum species, which one - I don't know, sorry.
Good work and nice descriptive note.
I like this ones, with landscape and sharp, I wish it was a bit larger.
