I got lucky today with a very friendly dragonfly. This is for those who wonder about the Z2's macro abilities.

I didn't keep it from not flying, I was just very lucky. I shot in super macro, no tripod, manual focus.

Nice shot of a very trusting dragon fly! This is close as I could get. You did a lot better!

Mine was in direct sun too which blew out some details. I'll have to keep trying!

Are you sure you didn't drug that dragonfly first, or maybe it landed on a drop of super glue? Honestly - a very cool photo. Makes me glad I sold my Kodak 6490, and am waiting for the Z3 with super macro!!

I was lucky enough one warm summer day last year to come across a really big dragon fly sunning himself about waist high in our back yard. I zoomed in on him and snapped a few pictures, some with the flash. He was still there over twenty minutes later. I took some more. I was really curious to know why after an hour or so he was still there! After looking at my photos I think I know why. See those huge eyes they have? I am almost sure I temporarily blinded him with my flash! Eventually he went on his way. Best regards,

Here's a dragonfly I shot w/ my girlfriend's Z1.
Yup, some are just photogenic some aren't (dragonflies).
