This photo was taken at one of my favorite locations—the Ft. Worth Botanical Gardens. There’s a pond that is quite popular where people like to get their photos taken. Usually they create a commotion, get their pictures taken then move on. I can remain in that area for 15 minutes to a half hour—maybe even longer. It’s the best spot to ‘hunt’ for interesting subjects to photograph—like the dragonfly.
If you’re interested in taking photos of dragonflies, be patient. They are actually pretty cooperative. They may fly away from a spot—but if you wait a few seconds, they will return to that spot. At least that’s been my experience more often than not. 😉
