Dragon Fly on Birdsfoot Trefoil

This is a dragon fly resting on a piece of Birdsfoot Trefoil.  Photographed early in the morning, the dragonfly and flower are still covered in dew.  It is hard to see in this size, but I am picking up reflections of the sky in the dew drops.

This photo was obviously not shot recently :)   I will be mixing recent photos along with photos from last year that did not get post, though should have during my bouts of non posting. Feel free to comment on some of the photos.

Resting

Scott found this Fritillary one morning late last summer while out shooting.  With it’s wings closed we could see he was a little beaten up. It wasn’t until he had warmed up enough to spread his wings that I saw just how bad he really was.

The second butterfly Scott found was in much better shape.

Morning Rays

This photo, shot on the same day as the previous three photo, seemingly shows rays of light streaming from the clouds. I did this using a long exposure and zooming the lens at the end of the exposure without adjusting focus. I do not remember if I zoomed in or out. I also used this technique on a previous photo (http://potd.chrisempey.com/2008/06/20/20-zoom-zoom/).

Photos shot the same day:
A New Dawn
Sunday Morning on the Lake
Incoming Storm

Morning Storm

While I was out with Scott and John not too long ago, we were standing around talking when we noticed the storm that was off in the distance now much closer. I had time to quickly walk to my camera, spin around and get off this one photo of the storm coming in. This was the start of rain and extremely high winds. There was also and almost immediate 10 degree drop in the temperature.

A New Dawn

The sun peaks over the horizon on a late December morning. Photographed over Lake Erie, this picture shows the sun just rising over the horizon and being reflected in the water on a beach near Fort Erie.
