WOW! How did you do that? I'm waiting for my fz15. Will I be able to take pics like that? I'm not really a bug person, but that's a pretty cute bug!

okay... i've seen a ton of dragonfly pics on this site, and no one has ever been able to tell me how to get that darn close! every time i see a dragonfly around here, he's whizzing by at 30 mph, and if he lands at all, he's gone again before i get within ten feet of him!! do you guys have some nifty little song you sing to mesmerize the dragonflies so they stay still while you take their pics???

these are great shots, dian, if you're a beginner, you're well on your way!

No trick squirl, I know this particular dragonfly. His name is Nigel, originally from Manchester. Stowed on board Virgin Atlantic and has had the traveling bug ever since. He's showed up in places all over the world. Offer him a little Johnnie Walker Black and he'll let you do a complete photo shoot until he can't stand anymore. Poor thing he's addicted to the stuff you know. Thank God he's a happy drunk, he always has a smile on his face!!!!:G:G:G

BTW, AWESOME SHOTS, DIAN

Hi Dian,
nice shot!
But dragonflies are a bit more shy in Germany.
I have to keep a distance of about 6 feet unless it is very early in the morning.
I this case they are sleeping and you will not find them!
My dragonfly is a not a "giant" as yours.
So i used: FZ5, sigma achromat (+1,6), Olympus C-180 Teleconverter no tripod.
As dragonflies have their favorite places I simply had to wait.....
