Default Dragonfly close up...

I posted these earlier in another thread but,
since I own a Pentax, I hang out in that forum and forget that everybody doesn't view that site so, I thought I'd share these here also. Bob's post caused me to recall these I'd taken a while back so, you can blame him for these.

Taken with the 55-300mm and K20d




















This one didn't turn out as well but, I liked the way he cocked his head in this shot and thought it was kind of cute.

I love dragonfly pics, and these are GREAT! That last one is unique, it's rare for me to see one with such personality!

If I may ask what settings were used to get such great clarity and focus depth?

Hey guys, I really apologize for taking so long to reply back and thank everyone for all the complements.I really appreciate all the encouraging remarks. Thank you.

To answer Pure Evo's question, here is the EXIF data


Camera Maker: PENTAX

Camera Model: PENTAX K20D
Focal Length: 300.0mm (35mm equivalent: 450mm)
Aperture: f/8.0
Exposure Time: 0.0029 s (1/350)
ISO equiv: 140
Exposure Bias: -1.00 EV
Metering Mode: Center Weight
Exposure Mode: Manual
White Balance: Auto
Flash Fired: Yes (Manual)

I have to say it was more luck than expertise, everything just happened to work really well. The green background was just the weeds in my backyard that pretend to be my lawn.
I agree the color couldn't have been more perfect but, I can't take credit for it.
Thanks again,
