I like #4 the best, but focus is a bit soft on that one.

These were taken with my FZ-20 and tripod, under a very cloudy sky just after a late afternoon/early evening thunderstorm.

#1, #2 and #3 were taken with flash. Did a bit of noise reduction with NeatImage and cropped, no resize.

okay, so HOW do you guys all seem to get dragonflies to perch cooperatively on a stick where you can snap pic after pic of them?? Dragons around here don't even LAND, much less sit still while I waltz up and set up a tripod! if there IS one perched somewher, it takes off before i get within 10 feet of it!

great shots, terrific clarity and detail! :cool:

Well, if you had to live thru the nasty storm that had just rolled thru, you would also be sitting around taking a break.

:)

I promised her a margarita aftterwards...

You mean these are straight out from the camera, without any macro lens attachment? Amazing focus and clarity. Great pictures!

Yes, all I did was crop the pictures and run them thru NeatImage to remove a bit of noise, not much.

Most are around 10 to 12 x from about 10 feet or so away.

From 10feet? It is all the more amazing! Tan Chuan Ye, watch out! You have a competitor emerging!!
