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.
Lovely macro work. Looks like she needs a shave.
