Great Blue Skimmer - Libellula vibrans
02-AUG-2007 BJ Ramsay

Great Blue Skimmer - Libellula vibrans

Flag Ponds NP, Calvert MD

A picture from today's walk in Flag Ponds. Sandy Spitalnik tweeked
a little interest in me when she provided the ID on a recent post
of a dragonfly from the Ponds, further investigation indicates there
may be over 22 species of dragonfly around Flag Ponds. I've started a
gallery to see how many I can get good shots of:

Dragonflies

Additionally I've added an archive shot I've been working on to get a good
"achromatic" print of as part of the August Achromatic Challenge:


Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF
1/320s f/5.6 at 400.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original
