I photographed these two Blue Dasher dragonflies in natural light without fill flash. You’ll get your best shots (of almost any subject, but insects in particular) on an overcast day.
Check out Eric Isley’s article, Dragonfly Photography 101, for great tips on capturing these beautiful insects, as well as David Westover’s (very detailed!) article on How to Photograph Dragonflies with Flash.
