Blue Dragons

I found these two Blue Dragonflies on the same day as the previous post. Again, I was surrounded by mosquitoes, which the dragonflies would hunt after resting on their perch. This pair was in an Allegon County, Michigan field.

Green Dragon

I found this Green Dragonfly as it took a break from hunting mosquitoes yesterday in Allegan County, Michigan. It had picked a good spot to find them, as I was surrounded by the biting insects. Despite the annoyance, I couldn’t resist getting this photo. I used my Canon 50mm F-2.5 Macro lens and moved in close to the subject which wasn’t disturbed by me presence.

Orange Hawkweed

I was hoping to find some colorful butterflies today, but with none to be found  this Orange Hawkweed flower was a welcome sight. I found it today in Allegan County, Michigan as the sun emerged from cloudy skies. I’m sure it won’t be long before I’ll get a chance to photograph the butterflies that arrive each summer. I’ll most likely use what I did today for this flower photo, a Canon 50mm F-2.5 Macro Lens which allows closeup detailed images. (Click on any of my photos to see an enlarged version)

British Soldiers Lichen

I found these British Soldier Lichen, Cladonia Cristatella, growing today in the Allegan State Game Area in Michigan. They are found throughout the state on decaying wood and in open fields. The red tips are reproductive structures.

Alien Forest Found

Like an alien forest sprouting from the ground, I found these red sporophytes emerging from moss at the Allegan State Game area in Michigan today. I needed a macro lens to capture the tiny plants which were only about a quarter of an inch (6.35 mm) tall.
