Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I'm sure other similar and probably better programs are available Harold
I used it far too much when i was at work so am fairly familiar with how it works.
All i did was to make two copies and croped the sides so i could move them closer together until the Owl was able to show a single 3D image.

I got through a research career without using it once.

You did very well Harold. I'm afraid in the branch of industry i was in it was pretty much essential as there were always too many people who thought they needed to know what was going on!

I have just been informed (British Dragonfly Society) that the bronze colour of the thorax is a sign of old age.

Emperor Dragonfly Laying Eggs

This is a combination of visits on two occasions to two well-separated ponds at Decoy Heath reserve. In each case there was just the one female. They lay their eggs between water lily plants or among rushes, etc., the latter sometimes making a clear view tricky. The distances were from about 20 feet to maybe 100 feet.

The stereos are crosseye.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Panasonic 100 - 400mm Leica DG Vario-Elmar at 400mm 1/100 at f10.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I hadn't seen a Gatekeeper this year until today and suddenly they were all over the place. It's slightly depressing seeing those blackberries forming though. I am still waiting for summer to arrive.

Taken with the 300mm f4 and MC-14 as it was all I had with me.

Walti, it is lovely seeing those Cinnabar Moth caterpillars feeding on Ragwort. It has taken me straight back 60 years to my youth.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Orthetrum cancellatum Black-Tailed Skimmer Mating

I shot these on my first visit to Decoy Heath Reserve on 28 May. They chose this cluttered, stoney beach to land on. The males, in articular ware very difficult to see on the ground, even when you have just seen them alight.

The images has been cropped by about 20%. I have removed much of the OOF stem which was in exactly the wrong place.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Panasonic 100 - 400mm Leica DG Vario-Elmar at 400mm 1/500 at f9, ISO 250, hand held.

I'm not sure if anyone has answered that but it is a male Small White.

The female Brimstone is uniformly pale yellow with the undersides of the hind wings a bit more greenish. The forewings have no black tips but a distinct point projecting backwards.

Did you wait and see the whole transformation? What is the white stringy stuff coming out of the back of it? (or am I better off no knowing? )

Walti,

See the edited version. For some reason my mind strayed to Orange Tips.

Not an option. That was all history when I got there, with the dragon long gone.
