Default A few Dragonflys

Testing out the new Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM. Looks like it might be a keeper...

Love the last shot, just an all around beautiful image. We often get too hung up of capturing details and forget about the aesthetics.

I agree with JJ and Saly, and personally, I like close up shots like yours better than the "scientific" macros we see often. I like to see the critter in it's natural surroundings. You have captured that well.

I'm just north of Columbus in Delaware.


Thanks for all the polite words.

I continue to learn, but the more I figure out.... I realize how little I actually know.
