Default Dragonfly

Something a little different from me as I've never managed to get an acceptable shot of a dragonfly/bug/insect etc.

Shot with the Canon SX1 at full zoom from the minimum focus distance.

Wowser that is one incredible shot. These are really skittish and hard to get them to sit still for a shot like this. Having tried it many times I can appreciate the shot. Thanks Mark.

Very nice shot. The SX-1 is a capable camera, but a good photographer makes it better..Keep 'em comin'
