Dragonflies in Flight

Photographing dragonflies in flight requires a lot of patience and a good knowledge of local dragonfly habitats. Perhaps it is this challenge that makes it so enjoyable. I have spent many hours sitting beside my favorite dragonfly pond or standing in the middle the best local dragonfly bog with my camera in hand ready to photograph the next dragon that hovers for long enough to allow me to get on it. This gallery actually includes both dragonflies and damselflies, although most photos are of "dragons". It also is not regional, so I will include photos from anywhere.
