I got a couple of dragonflies whenI was visiting Texas last summer but I wasn't able to get very close to them. It really made me appreciate the tele-macro mode on the FZ7.
I did use the tele-macro function, both with and without the tele converter. And then I just pulled in the zoom and stuck the camera right next to the dragonfly. Tele-macro is good, and there will be times when it is a godsend, but this was such a cooperative subject I did not need it. The hardest part of shooting this dragonfly was trying to make sure those invisible wings were still in the frame.

Thanks, for commenting, and thanks also Annie, WindRowe, Rafael, Raghu and Bayourebel. Glad you like my little fly.

Now to look for my personal favorite; the Blue Darner.

Nice first dragonfly capture. The center part of the body is so well adapted for camoflage with the background. I had to look twice to see what the head was attached to. Very sharp the detail on the wings is excellent.
