What a hairdo in that second heron shot. Dragon Flies are an art to shoot. They don't sit still too long and when I do manage some shot they typically are not sharp front to back like your first and third shots above. Very nice.

Nice set of shots, the spiked hair heron is a good one and the dragon flies are very nice. Thanks for sharing

Thanks y'all for looking and your comments. I have a ton-o'fun doing the dragonflies, one of these days I will get a RED-large, I see them but the critters seem never to be still.

For the heron on the snag with the backlight, actually side and a bit high, I did not expect to see the detail because I could not look at it for the brightness.

Again, get the card home and look for surprises, always fun.

.......thanks again, Bob

Tnx James, dragonflies are so fun to shoot and the 70-300 is the lens to use for'em.

You used tubes for those shots, correct?

...not for these James, lens only @ 190mm - 300mm. See the EXIF for the details.

The 70-300 does quite well on its own and with dragonflies, 'CLOSE' is usually not an option.
