Female Blue Dasher

Female Blue Dasher, Emmon’s Preserve, Kennebunkport, Maine

It was a hot day at Emmon’s Preserve in Kennebunkport, Maine, with strong August sun, and this female Blue Dasher is obelisking (pointing her abdomen toward the sun) to keep as cool as possible. One of the most common of dragonflies in Southern Maine all summer, but nicely posed on this fence post. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/640th @ f4 @ ISO 100. Processed in Polarr.
