Jhongsing Village Lotus Ponds

Lotus
Last month, I had some free time to kill so I headed to the Jhongsing Village Lotus Ponds.  This was my first visit to the ponds with my  Micro-NIKKOR 105 f/4, which I acquired last year.  The Lotus Flowers [荷花] in Jhongsing Village always attract quite a crowd when they are blooming and the day I went was no exception.  Given the bad light from my late start, the heat, and the crowds – I decided to make this a brief trip.

After growing tired of the crowds and the heat – I decided to focus on some insects hanging out at the ponds instead of flowers:

Lotus and Dragonfly

Enter the Dragonfly

Lotus and Damselfly

Currently, about a month after these photographs were taken; the Lotus Ponds of Jhongsing Village are looking a bit barren.  I guess I will have to wait a year before I make a return visit.
