The Witch Doctor
Why my Mother called dragonflies Witch Doctors I have absolutely no idea. I would liken it to why the sky is blue but I know that one and the same for why zebras have stripes. Science is your friend for useless facts like that and I’m loaded with them. Why its called a witch doctor no earthly idea but I’m sure its on the internets some where if I really bothered to look but I’ll keep the air of mystery around this one for the sake of the story and the reasoning of the picture.
I was shooting a pond with 15 to 30 second exposures with my Canon and kept my E-M5 handy with the 60mm macro lens. I saw the dragonflies flitting around but knew with a long exposure on the Canon no way could I capture them. This little guy/girl flew pasted me and alighted (I’m full of flowery words) on the leaf. Seeing how I had a camera handy with a macro lens, behold the ending result. I shot about 12 frames and this one is the best so enjoy.
