Default ...dragons & snakes with the 40-150PRO

I just totally like using the f/2.8 40-150 PRO + the MC14. Also, for most all my dragonfly images I add the digi-X2.

These are all with that combination on the E-M1.


















.........RAT snake .. a good little fellow about 3-feet length

The angle/composition you were able to achieve on that 4th shot is just flat perfect. I like them all, but that's the winner for me.

I have seen a few dragons the past several weekends. Even tried capturing a few with no luck such as this, and so appreciate these even more.

Oh my, Bob. Those shots look like the dragonflies had landed on my monitor screen!! I almost jumped back when the file opened.

Guys.... Thanks for the comments, the 40-150 PRO is for sure a fantastic lens.

Greg, that file is one of my all-time favorites for several reasons.

Steven, I will run some over at PR....

Yeah like everyone else said (and like you knew already ) those are great. How close were you?

As a slight aside insect photography story--yesterday I saw a wasp attack and kill a wolf spider and start dragging it away. Then it saw me and started flying around. I ran, haha. No dedication I guess.

Hey, no bad thing to run from hovering wasps. I don't stick around either...
