chasing dragonflies

IMG_0011
During the fall on the Oregon Coast, when the winds are blowing east and if you are in the right place (at the right time) you can experience a true natural wonder- thousands and thousands of dragonflies on migratory flight. Thanks to a tip from a friend- I was able to be in the right place at the right time and it was something quite magical to experience- the air filled with swarms of dragonflies- their colorful wings twinkling in the sunlight. Armed with my camera I did my best to capture the moment- challenging to say the least- chasing dragon flies is no easy feat! With Lucy strapped to my back, I hiked along the shoreline and managed to capture a few cool shots but I finally gave up and just sat back and watched them twinkle and shine. Nothing could truly capture the beauty of experiencing this phenomenon in person!
