A staple of summer in ponds and wherever you find water are dragonflies. I have found them interesting to photo, a bit difficult for me.  I use a  100 to 400 or 150 to 600 telephoto lens but am finding that there is other equipment I should consider: https://digital-photography-school.com/10-tips-for-photographing-dragonflies/. I will continue to practice photographing them using a telephoto lens this summer but will consider other options next summer.

 I have not spent a lot of time identifying dragonflies but there is a great Facebook page full of experts:  Dragonflies and Damselflies - Worldwide Odonata (https://www.facebook.com/groups/odonata/). You might want to check it!

Enjoy my photos!
