Caught with FZ3, telemacro, handheld. This first one is so small that I have to really zoom up the pic to show the insect. I don't have a good noise remover yet.

This is the regular variety.

You're right - there is a lot of noise in the first pic. The second is very nice tho - good detail :cool:

Both nice shots Raghu but the second one is especially good! Jim

Thanks, Suze and Jim. It has started raining here, I hope to see more dragonflies when the rain stops.

Second shot is better but both are nice. Careful with noise removers. I have PSPx and the noise remover in it messes up my shots when I print, more than it helps.Even when I use the Auto just once. - Don

Raghu, nice shots, but yes, too noisy. Go to and download the free version. It'll do wonders. Here is the first one run through it. Naturally you will get better results with the full sized version of the image.

Very nice, which program did you use? Yours looks better now than the one that I cleaned up.

Credit goes to you. Noise reduction with Neat Image; a little bit of PP with Picasa.
