Top 20 Photos of 2013 - #9


This was an instance of discovering something different to what was initially expected. Here at the KL Orchid Garden we were surrounded by a plethora of beautiful orchids growing from the floor, hanging from baskets, lining shops. I went to gaze at a small pond when this pink dragonfly appeared from nowhere and decided to stay put. Slowly preparing my camera I tried to limit my movement as much as possible so as not to alarm this beautiful specimen. I was praying he wouldn't fly away as has happened so many other times. My prayers were answered and I shot several photos of this dragonfly as he perched on this tiny branch.


  1. Wonderful Duncan.
    What place the sat på.Perfekt for a trigger-happy photographer.
    Congratulations on a super slide.

  2. Oh well done Duncan, excellent macro shot, your dragon fly was tres obliging oui :)

  3. Absolutely fabulous! Love the cropping too.

  4. Great photo, Duncan! I've never seen a dragonfly of any other color than blue or green (sometimes blue and green), so this was a discovery for me. How kind of the dragonfly to stay put for your shot, eh? ;)

  5. I love close ups! This one is fab with the contrast of colours.
