Dragonflies in Love

Sympetrum sanguineum
Ruddy Darter
Blutrote Heidelibelle

Glendalough, County Wicklow, Republic of Ireland, Europe

Dragonflies can be enervating photo objects due to their restlessness (especially when realizing an approaching lens). These two Ruddy Darters found at a walk at Glendalough in County Wicklow had better to do than escaping my macro lens - which opened time enough to get close, adjust focus and exposure and get some fast shots.
