Made another visit to the Wetlands Park near me. Wanted to take some macros of dragonflies and other critters. Got some shots but the breeze wasn't very cooperative! The cottonwood bushs were really loaded and the seed pods were blowing everywhere, and hanging up on other plants. Jim

#3 Even the dragonflies were having trouble holding onto the weeds! Note the wings folding in the wind.

#6 This Burrowing Owl didn't seem to mind the wind but seemed to be annoyed that I woke him up!

Jim

Squirll said it all - and that owl shot is terrific. Its eyes just pop right out of the screen.

Cheers

Absolutely fantastic. That owl is non to happy with you though. I am surprised of the macro quality you were able to capture in the wind.
