A Lightweight on a Heavyweight

Came upon this image while looking for blog material this morning. While photographing the dragonflies that I featured over the past few posts, I also came upon this Halloween Penant that was resting atop an Ironweed wildflower:

Halloween Penant Dragonfly on Ironweed wildflower

I always enjoy finding/photographing dragonflies and butterflies in the meadow, especially when they are on/around colorful wildflowers.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D body
  • Canon EF 100mm-400mm f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, shot at 390mm
  • Handheld, with IS “On”
  • ISO 500
  • Aperture f/5.6
  • Shutter 1/2000 sec.
