So the Owl is in my best top ten but it is not only the Owl that fascinated me on my journey with nature.
Take the Dragon Fly insect that never seems to keep still, many hours trying to capture it in flight and others just creeping through the grass when it lands
So one day in the summer of 2012 I was walking along a disused railway when I noticed a dragon fly moving back and forth. Standing still I watched as it settled on a leaf stem.
Being a bit more flexible in those days I crawled forward using the old leopard crawl I had learned in the Army days.
Camera ready I had a Canon 60mm Macro Lens on my Canon 50D. Getting closer and closer I got within inches of it and I as I looked through the lens at its beauty, it seem to look at me straight on.
This was so exciting as I had never seen the detail icon this amazing insect before. So I took about 20 to 30 shots and moved slowly back.
Was this another meeting wher nature and man meet and everything is just perfect. I really don’t know and thats what is great about wildlife photography.
Look at the detail and colour on the Emporium Dragon Fly.?
