    This dragonfly was asleep in the early morning in the fog. The fog or dew drops collected on his wings.

    That is very good capture - the dew drops make the image. I would have like to see a bit more DOF so that the wings are all in focus

    More DOF, you and me both. Why I was shooting with f/4, I have no idea.

    Thanks for all the comments.

    Imagine how small those drops of water actually are. Nice shot, I know around here the dragon flys will not sit long for pictures.

    This was taken very, very early on a cooler, foggy morning. I don't think he was awake yet and didn't fly away. I've also never been able to get one during the day.

    Yes, dragonflies are difficult to capture. The only ones I've been able to get are early in the morning.

    Your image is super. Imagine how difficult it must have been to fly away with all that 'baggage' on its wings!
