Each evening as we sit outside in our little yard, we're often joined by dozens of dragonflies. Samuel usually steals the show, so they routinely go unnoticed. However, if I'm paying attention, I'll see them land on the fence to rest. It's not uncommon to see three or four of them all in a row. I've never seen so many dragonflies in the same place so consistently. I like to imagine they're all showing up at their neighborhood hangout to swap stories at the end of a long day. ;-)
I practiced using manual mode this evening. I also used a different lens than I normally do. The close-ups of the dragon flies aren't as clear as I would like, but it was still a fun challenge.
