A Common Darter symbolically on an autumnal leaf to show the beginning of the end of its brief season. ...
Really poetic subject. Wonderful, Alan.

Is the wing getting blind or is it fogged? I cannot recognise it.

One of my last pictures. A migrant hawker.
It's getting cold and rainy throughout the next week. I don't think that I will have much more chances on dragonflies.
I still have some on my HDD but I'm already awaiting the the 2022 season ;)

There are still some Ruddy Darters around. I got this one yesterday with the 100-500mm. It's a pity I didn't have the RF 100-400mm as I'd like to have tested it.
It's the best shot I have got of the grid of lenses on an eye because the light was right. Focus stacked to get both ends sharp.
