Congratulations Jason Hahn
Damselflies with reflections, ICF 2008

Hi folks, haven't posted in a long time thanks in part to the ICF contest and a zillion other projects over the past few months.

This is one of the images that I submitted as part of my portfolio in this years ICF Pro-tour. While making my daily circuit of the waterholes on the ranch, I found this little pond had hundreds of damselflies flying around over it. I found a couple of pieces of grass sticking out of the water that these guys would regularly land on, and was fortunate to get these two landing and facing each otehr for a split second.
