The Second Damselfly, 2009. Video 04

今日は快晴、蜻蛉池までMTBで走りました。先日の糸蜻蛉に出会いたかったのです。然し、なかなか見付けることが出来ず、諦めて帰途に就こうとしたのです。その時、幸運にも糸蜻蛉が飛び立ち、私は糸蜻蛉を確認することが出来ました。この時期の蜻蛉は、肉眼では半透明にしか見えないのです。カメラは魔術師です。
合掌。  

It was clear today. I ran by MTB to the Dragonfly Pond. I wanted to meet the damselfly of the other day. However, I was not able to readily find them. That is why I gave it up and was going to come home. Fortunately a damselfly flew, and I was able to confirm a damselfly then. The damselfly of this time looks like only semitransparency by the naked eye. The camera is a magician.

mmmm...windy conditions appear to make photography tough. I have todate not done a dragonfly video but I will try it when the conditions are right.

Looking forward for dragonflies now!

Thank you very much for your comment.
I still use the old compact digital camera. The model name is Canon PowerShot S2IS. I have already used it for four years. I take both the photograph and the video with this camera. The S series of Canon PowerShot is cheap, and it is a superior camera. The camera is a magician. If there is not the help of the magician, I cannot watch a dragonfly.
I uploaded a photograph in the following blog

I would have to agree with Amila, windy conditions interfere with your attempts...still...I enjoyed the sight of your Damsel and the sounds of Spring!

For small damselfly, this wind is severe. Because they appear in the world and do not pass through time. Strong wind blew last night, and it rained. However, the wind calms down this morning, too, and it is fine. I hope that it is a good day for dragonflies.
