Buzzzzz... wait what sound do dragonflies make?

Ze pinkz one..

Well, I assumed they would buzz, don't they? But I do have quite an obsession with these creatures. I find them very interesting to photograph and can be quite easy as well. Especially since Lord Mint told me last time that dragonflies will land back at the exact same spot after they fly off for the first time.

Makes camping for them that much easier...

Yellow dragonfly

And then I saw this lovely background for a dragonfly shot but the dragonfly was so far into the bushes that I couldn't get to it unless I go Godzilla on the flowers. So I went for LiveView and tried to shoot it. Not too bad la hor..

A blue dragon!

And at Tmn Rimba Kiara, I was astounded, amazed, surprised by the variety of dragonflies there. I've never seen the blue one up there before and I certainly haven't seen the red one down below before:

So red!

So, what is next? Some more random shots from Tmn Rimba Kiara of course! Still got a few more to share then I'll move to something a lil different.

Wooohoo.. Rimba Kiara, the land of dragonflies :P

Hey, instead of hunting the dragonflies, did u know the 'cucuk-a-stick-on-the-ground-and-wait-for-them-to-come' trick? Works best when u cucuk the branch/stick/ranting at the fringe of the pond. Once you've done that, just point your lens to that stick and they'll magically come.
