Day 191—Curmudgeonfly

This dragonfly alit on a Fortnight Lily at the gym this morning. It looks rather curmudgeonly and even a bit sad to me. Who knew a dragonfly could show personality?

I tweaked the photo a little, cropping to a vertical format and applying Curves to make up for the slight overexposure. I wish I’d had my beanbag with me to steady the camera a little better. The focus went a little fuzzy when I cropped it.

Focal Length 200mm
ISO 200

  1. Wow- he DOES look curmudgeonly! It has to be a great shot if you can see the expression on a dragonfly’s face! And I think your zoom is doing a great job standing in for a macro lens!!!
