Dragonfly In Drip~Drop Condition

It seems the rain has some advantages. Not if you are a Dragonfly though. I think it’s an Imature Male Common Darter. It crash landed as the rain started, so I snapped a few shots, and put it somewhere more sheltered. The rain drops really highlight those wonderful compound eyes. Shame the antenna can’t be used as windscreen washers lol. I’m chuffed to bits with these considering the equipment I used.

I used my 70-210mm Lens, exposure F11-F14 and 36mm Kenko tube, handheld and built in flash. I’ve got to get an external flash and diffuser next, to rid those pesky light reflections!
