I found this little guy hanging around my back yard today. He was nice enough to sit still and let me shove my FZ30's lens right in his face for a few close up shots.

Another pose. I didn't set the aperture large enough for good DOF on a couple shots. This one I managed to do alright.

Very nice. Was that just the FZ30 lens?

Jerry - Yes, just the FZ30,some cropping and a bit of PP in Picasa.

He was a very cooperative subject to shoot.

You're lucky yoursubject was cooperative. I have found the dragons over here are too sensitive andshift positionat the slightest move you make, even from a distance. Nice pics.

Thanks Suze.

It has made me take a serious look at getting a macro lens. The Raynox DRC-250 is tempting me at the moment. Looks like it gets pretty nice results with the FZ30 and the price is definitely right.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Two VERY nice shots RedStick ! With that light background the dragonflies stand out like 3D. Jim

Be careful with this axe .....

The drc-250 is ant-size quality, even the dcr-150 could betoo strong for many butterfly and dragonfly shots (you need distance!!).

Most of us start with 2.5 diopters.
