I am out and about as usual to catch something amazing through the lens. The weather is warm and it is not raining at the moment and I noticed an excessive amount of dragonflies flying around. So I tried to catch shots of the different ones.
I am really impressed by the dragonfly. It is a strong insect. Sometimes the local kids catch these and tie twine or plastic strings around them. When they get away you can see the string flying through the air like a lost balloon.
Dragonflies come in many colors and sizes.
These shots were taken near Barangay Agaas, Part of the Caramoan Municipality, Camarines Sur, Bicol, Philippines.
The camera body used is a Canon EOS 1200D DSLR. Lens is a Sigma 70-300mm with Macro setting on, Auto Focus off. Hood was used. No filters.
As always, thank you for viewing my photography and reading. I have joined a crowd funding site for artists in different genres, patreon, to help fund and add to my hobby. I would be grateful to anyone who assists. Thank you!
