August begins dragonfly season. Monday afternoon (8-8-18) many were flying around Sprague Pond at Lynnwood's Mini Park.

One landed on the strap of my 7DII, which was mounted on a tripod with the 500L telephoto + 2x III teleconverter to photograph birds.


I took a series of ever closer photos with the 1Dx + 100-400L II telephoto zoom until I got too close and it flew away.





In past years I have photographed merlin fledglings hunting dragonflies in August at the Edmonds marsh. I'll have to start looking for them.
