This photo show a damselfly (not a dragonfly) chilling near the Salt River near Mesa, AZ
The Salt River is formed by the confluence of the White River and the Black River in the White Mountains of eastern Gila County. The White and Black rivers, and other tributaries of the upper Salt River, drain the region between the Mogollon Rim in the north and the Natanes Mountains and Natanes Plateau to the east and south. Tributaries of the Salt River also drain the Sierra Ancha and Mazatzal Mountains. The White and Black rivers drain the White Mountains in the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. Together the two rivers drain an area of about 1,900 square miles (4,900 km2). The Salt River, along with the Black River, forms the boundary between the Fort Apache Indian Reservation to the north and the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation to the south.
The Salt River is fed by numerous perennial streams that start as springs and seeps along the Mogollon Rim and in the White Mountains. The Salt River is perennial from its tributary headwaters to Granite Reef Diversion Dam near Mesa.
How was this Damselfly artwork created ?
I first spotted this gorgeous insect on the water, where it was drinking. After following it around with my 600mm Sigma lens I finally got it to sit down and pose for me. I used my Benro Tripod, Nikon D810 and Sigma 150-600 Sports lens and took a 1/2000 shot. Don’t you love the crazy creamy bokeh ?
