Default Dragon in my Garden

Well what do you know ...... there are other forums here besides the Pentax one and this one is for my favourite topic too. Apologies in advance to any Pentax shooters that may have already seen any of the shots (in the Pentax forum) I may post in the future (hope I'm not breaking any rules here) !

I'll start with a dragonfly that stopped off in my garden (the first one ever - they usually just drive me to distraction by flying overhead - I'll let you imagine what I look like twisting and turning trying to catch an impossible DIF shot) !

Pentax K7, Tamron 90 Di, Raynox 250 (for the last shot only).

Well, Kevin...
I remember see these in the other forum but, I like seeing them again.
Like I said before, they turned out great.
The detail in the last shot just blows me away!

Ha Ha, I try to sneak in here once every week or two. Its a good place to see others work and pick up some tips. Its not as active as our forum but, still a good place to get some feed back and encouragement on our own shots.
Another good place to visit is the wild life forum.
Cheers,
