Default Dragonfly and bee

Took my Sony a300 and Tamron 70-300 out this morning and found these guys. Shot at 180mm. Please enjoy.

Thanks for looking, Robert

The colours here are lovely and I really like the composition and quality of the dragonfly. I really want to get a lens that allows macro but can't have everything.

Thanks Mark, but this lens is rather inexpensive. Maybe one day I can get a grown up macro lens

Hehe, I know it's not all that expensive, I had one on my Konica Minolta 5D (my dad has that kit now) and it was fun to play with. I have nothing in my Canon lineup currently that really goes close. Can't have everything I guess.

My problem is I have too many other "hobbies/distractions" that require "feeding". So I have to compromise in a lot of areas.

Tell me about it, I play golf a few times a week, fly radio controlled aircraft/helicopters, photo/video stuff, actively involved with my church (youth leading and music), I play in a band where we do weddings, corporate events etc..... hmmm, I think that covers the main things.

What about you, I'm guessing your dog is a key part of your life?

Well, the dog, my Grandkids, bass fishing, and like you until recently, I played guitar most of my life. Makes life interesting, but busy and at times, expensive. Oh, and the rest of the time I am trying to make money to support all this,

What stopped you playing guitar?

Oh, congratulations that was your 500th post.
