While wandering through Zilker Park Botanical Gardens in Austin Texas, Robert Thomas was photographing flowers and wildlife. Suddenly, a beautiful bright red dragonfly landed in front of him. Stunned at the beauty and vibrancy of its color, he shot a photo from about 15 feet away. That was all it took for him to be totally fascinated by these creatures.
Robert Thomas has spent the last 6 years travelling and photographing odonates (dragonflies). His photographs have graced the covers of numerous field guides. His collection of photographs contains many very rare species. As Thomas puts it, “It’s a matter of being in the right place at the right time, and a little good luck and know how.”
Bring the family and join Robert Thomas for a colorful, unique, and exciting program all about dragonflies, and how to photograph them.
