Saly,

absolute fantastic shots. You are really a virtuoso with the FZ35 and LC55. Did you used a tripod for this shots?

Cheers,

Stefan (really jealous ;-))

Thanks Stefan! Sometime everything cooperates (subject, sun, wind...). No, I didn't use a tripod. I find it too cumbersome when chasing after small bugs. As long as there's light, it's not necessary.

I posted a few more dragon flies in the Closeup Section.

WOW!!

Really fantastic series!

#1 is as good as National Geographic magazine photos... Sharpness, colors, definition, exposure, DOF... really fabulous.

Congratulations

Saly, hard to choose which is best, but 1st and last are just outstanding.

Is the grasshopper an infant or a small species?

Thanks Square one, I'm not really sure about the grasshopper, but I'm thinking it is a juvenile. It has that chubby baby look...
