Here are a couple more from my yard.  The resting ones are easier to shoot:

Still with the Nikon 300mm and 1.4x extender, with maybe some macro extension tubes thrown in for good measure.  I have a 2x extender now though, so hopefully I'll get some even cooler shots, if they'll just hold still long enough for me :)

Just discovered this forum today.  And, I thought I was the only one who loved photographing dragonflies!

This was the very first image I took, the day my brand new 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens arrived, back in 2011!  Needless to say, I kept the lens!  ;D
7D & 70-200mm f/2.8 II

I really like those shades of green.
Thank you Click!  I thought the shades of green were very interesting as well.  I caught this one totally unprepared, as I walked outside to look for some birds, my lens cap slipped from my pocket and as I turned to pick it up, I saw this Green Dragonfly land in a patch of thick grass right by my feet!  I just stayed my ground and took a couple snaps before he flew off!  I won a local contest with this one and it was also featured in an annual Calendar that one of our local banks produces each year.

Not a perfect photo, but I hope its interesting.
Found this guy flapping around near my pond, he couldn't fly properly, he'd keep tipping upside down
and flap around on the ground. So I took him indoors to save him from the birds. Although I tried to feed him he died the next day.  Just wonder if he was "born" that way or if a bird got him?
