Dragonfly (Benny) experience and my co-worker’s Canon.

Today, my co-worker allowed me to use his nice expensive Canon camera.  The experience left me forever changed…and It also left me with a new friend…Benny.

This little guy and I had tons of fun today as I tested my Co-worker’s camera.

At first, I didn’t know how close I could get to him without scaring him away

as it turned out, I could get close….really close, and he did not mind it..one bit……btw, there is no zoom action here, this is all Macro.

This guys just loved to show off. In one instance he left, and I thought, shoot, I scared him away, only to come right back with a bug in his mouth, as if to say “ooh OOh look what I can do”. I named him Benny

Im sure “Benny” was like “Oh another angle?….ok Im ready”

Thank you Benny for making my first experience with an expensive camera a memorable one. You are a good model and a good sport.

  1. These photographs are incredible! I found your page while looking at dragonfly photos for reference for a piece of dragonfly jewelry I am making. I have never seen one this color before. I may need to model my next dragonfly after Benny. :-)

  2. Awesome photo!! Benny is beautiful & bold. SOMETIMES they will even land on your hand or arm. Try extending your hand out, palm facing down, parallel to his perch, about 1-3 inches higher.

    • I will do that! I Dragonflies are awesome. I’ve had Damselflies land on me all the time, but not Dragonflies. Thanks for the tip :) I will definitely try this out next time I’m out shooting these guys :)

I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to leave a comment :)

I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
