Challenge #29 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
This challenge is just for DRAGONFLIES, (Order Odonata, Suborder Anistera) possibly the fastest fliers in the insect kingdom. The dragonflies must be outside, on flowers, leaves, flying around, or just doing what dragonflies do; NOT under studio lights. Macro shots welcome. NO photos of Damselflies (Order Odonata, Suborder Zygoptera) please. They are usually smaller than dragonflies and will be DQ'd. They will have their own challenge later. http://bugguide.net/node/view/191/bgpage will provide more information about dragonflies. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.
