While Betsy and I were in the Italian Garden at Biltmore, I was photographing water lilies when this dragonfly started flying around the blossoms I was trying to photograph. When I moved to a different flower, it also moved. I didn’t have the proper lens to get macro of the dragonfly, but I liked the way the wings looked in the sunlight, so I got the picture above.
A little later I got him in a better pose. I haven’t had much experience capturing critters like these, but I did like the way these pictures turned out. I may have to try this again with the proper lens.
