The picture of this White-faced Meadowhawk Dragonfly (female) was taken in Shrewsbury Vermont. I took this picture with my CANON EOS 20D with the CANON 100mm Macro Lens. I used a CANON 580EXII fill flash.
I can only get a picture like this from a very cooperative dragonfly model. I am always grateful when a dragonfly such as this allows me to come close and spend time with her. I gradually move in closer and closer until I am actually a few inches from her face in order to get a capture like this. I found this White-faced Meadowhawk Dragonfly on an incredibly beautiful Vermont pond near the Maple Crest Farm Bed and Breakfast that we love to stay at in Shrewsbury Vermont.
