The early morning light is just right for macro photography of aquatic plants (also probable no wind blowing the plants around). These pictures were taken starting at 6:40 am untill 8:oo am.I had my tripod in the trunk of my car as well as the timberline boots, and I felt the call of the plants telling me to stop by the Aquatic Gardens as the conditions for photography were ideal. This is some of what I found.
Dragonfly name: Widow Skimmer Libellula luctuosa
All photographs were shot in manual mode except for dragonfly...Gary
