I was chasing dragonflies the other day, all over the lily pads at the last park we went to.  None of the ones I saw would stay still, not even for a second, and I didn't get my photograph.  Well, I went out of the house a few mornings ago to fill up the bird feeders, and there he was. 

I didn't think I would have any hope of getting a shot but as I watched he certainly wasn't going anywhere.  I went in to get my camera with the zoom and took a few hurried photos.  I went closer and he still stayed where he was.  A little closer still, he wasn't going anywhere.    

In the end I went back into the house and got my camera with the macro lens, went right up to him and took a couple of more photos.  He was a very co-operative dragonfly and I got a little more practice with my macro lens.

I am linking with Michelle's Nature Notes Thanks for hosting such a fun meme Michelle, one I love to join in when I have something to share.

As I have this last shot I thought I would link with Laura's I Heart Macro here
