Under the Radar

Dragonfly Scorcher 025

Sitting next to the lake I was pondering on how dragonflies always seem to keep their distance from me, avoiding my eager lens for two whole years, when I noticed a keeled skimmer systematically patrolling the margins and repeatedly returning to the same spot to observe the view…

After making several (clumsy) attempts to photograph the skimmer without any results at all…I returned to my seat to rethink my strategy…

Crawling on my belly was the only real option that remained…keeping low to avoid the dragonflies’ highly advanced detection system. 😉
