Not the most exotic background in the world, but you have to take what you can get. Sitting on the deck outside the cabin, this guy let me take all the pics I wanted.

Anyone know if these are so sluggish and still because they are getting ready to die this late in the year? I was about 1-2 inches away and he wasn't even really moving all that much.

Thanks Chris.... I think. :-) I have several more of the same dragonfly, and I was able to pick him up and get a couple pics of my daughter holding it. Later I thought why didn't I pick it up and put it somewhere more interesting?:angry: And yes all 6'4" of me was laying on the deck taking pictures of a stupid dragonfly.:-?

Thanks Vito,
Shallow DOF wasn't hard to get, it was around 6-7PM and not very light. I had to use f2.8 and was still only able to get 1/30 sec shutter. I didn't want to use the flash and blow everything out. the slow shutter wasn't a problem as I could rest the cam on the deck. Thanks again.
