Some most excellent dragonfly photos

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built the Greenbottom Wildlife Management Area along the Ohio River to mitigate the loss of wetlands caused by construction of the lock canal at what is now known as the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam. The wildlife area is about halfway between Huntington and Point Pleasant, W.Va.

A photographer by the name of Michael Hensley has been at Greenbottom photographing dragonflies. The photos are excellent. They're the kind that make you wish you had made them.

You can see his photos at

If anyone knows of other photographers who take excellent photos of wildlife along the Ohio River, please pass along the their URLs.
