That's a marvelous shot, Jim! You have captured it in its full glory! The blurred background really adds a good depth to this shot. How did you achieve it?

Thanks Robert. Those dragonflies just will not follow directions.

Settings I use most of the time for dragons. It changes based on how close the subject is.

Macro mode.
Aperture priority (Adjust to capture correct depth of subject)
Spot meter.
Spot focus.
Zoom out as needed (I never go over 16X)
Adjust exposure (Sometime use AE lock)

I will sometime use the flash set on the the lowest output but the subject has to be at the right distance are you will blow him out.

I also looks for locations where there is good distance between the subject and background.


Then hope your subject does not flay away.
