This is a pretty good side/back view of a male Whitetail. The camera angle allowed me to get most of the fly in focus. Whitetails are plentiful in our front yard this year (2015), where we have a bumper crop of both dragonflies and mosquitoes. Nikon D810A camera, 200mm f4 lens, 1/500s at f11, ISO 1600.
Thanks again to Gil for the ID: Common Whitetail (Plathemis lydia), adult male. D810a camera and 200mm f4 lens.
I like it when I can catch some detail in the compound eyes of bugs. This a close up of a male Common Whitetail dragonfly. Nikon D810a camera, 200mm f4 macro lens, f10, 1/320s, ISO 800.
For some reason these ladies seem to be very camera shy! Nikon D810A camera and 200mm f4 lens at f8, 1/250s, ISO 500.
Same as above, but full camera resolution on the Nikon D810A.
