|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hi Folks , today I have this image of a Meadow-hawk dragonfly , I think this one may be called a cherry faced meadow-hawk , but am not certain , it was hard to tell from this angle...|
this image shows the males reproductive organs , the females are located close to the end of the tail where she can lay her eggs under water attached to aquatic plants. some dragonflies here mate quite early in the year , these are migrating varieties such as the variegated meadow-hawk or the black meadow-hawk , they mate early so that their offspring can return south to warmer areas of the U.S. the overwintering varieties such as this will spend winter in the egg's. typically the first dragonflies seen in the fair weather season are migrating varieties the overwintering ones, such as this fellow, emerge much later in the spring...
thanks for having a look

Nice capture. Among all you dragonfly image presented yet, it is my prefered one. Head is not as impressive as in the others, but the wings have been capture in a nice position. It is may be more classical, but define clearly the insect. Focus is sharp on the body and the wings on one side (DOF is not easy at that magnification). I like the POV against the the light blue-green BG. Flash exposure reveal nice detail, but may be a bit overpowered if we look at the artistic aspect, perfect if we look at the scientific rendition. Finally I like the diagonal composition. All in all it is a nice picture for the pleasure of our eyes. TFS.
