Weekly Photo Challenge : Ephemeral Dragonfly /Damselfly

A submission to the new Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Dragonflies (and there relations Damselflies) are to me the epitomy of ephemeral. They are such short lived creatures on land, living most of their lives underwater as larvae.  They emerge from the water on one afternoon and emerge from their chrysalises. One dry they flit from place to place so fast it is difficult to capture.Here are some shots of Dragonflies over the years.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge : Ephemeral Picture

A submission to the new Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral.

Sometimes you take a photograph which is so ephemeral that a second later it would not exist. Such is it is with a photo I took on a recent trip to Rubondo. The focus of the image was the hippo dead centre.

It was definitely the star of the show. However, the Waterbuck which ‘photo-bombed’ the picture as it darted left is what makes this shot truly ephemeral. Within a few seconds it was gone, and the hippo remained chewing the grass.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Ephemeral Dawn

A submission to the new Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral.

Sunrises and Sunsets are by their very nature ephemeral as the light changes fast. This submission focuses not on the sun itself but the light it emits.
