2. A dragonfly from about 16 feet. I can only imagine what a set of extension tubes would do.

3. Bullfrog. Taken at 1/25 f/22 EC -1/3. unfortunately I was shooting between 2 long grass stems and had to shoot from above instead of at the frog's eye level. Which ate the frog? the spider or the mosquitos?:G

4. A northern flicker. the only 2 frames i got from quite a distance. I just want your opinions on which pose you like best and why disregarding the technicals.

Hi Dennis, I like the profile pose because you can see more of his head, including the red.

Me too on the Bull Frog shot. This guy has personality.

As for the Flickers, the profile shot is what we want to get, because it shows more of the bird, but in this case, the forward facing shot is clearer. So "technically," it's the better photograph...
