The place I went last sunday was full of Dragonflies. I must return there alone in the next days to have more time for the shots. I'll try some flying DF shots...

Narmer

PS all 2,5x to 12x FZ 20 macros, except for #3 (Nikon 5T+6T @ 3,3x, ext. flash) and #13 (Nikon 6T + 5T @ 6x zoom).

thanks Francesco,

it is so warm up here, that I will start to shoot macros early in the morning. I like the shots of insects covered with water drops....

My last damselfly rested on myleft hand. Time to train the one handed shooting.

Thanks Sven

I have the book of John Shaw with some great BF with dew on the wings.
But where I go to take shots is more than 2 hours of car from where I live...

Yet I must try in the countryside behind my house one day...

Thank you HarjTT.

I still have to find the time to go ALONE shooting macros (hopefully next weeks), or I ll hardly be able to take pics like the best DF ones posted here ...

wow. this is exactly what im aiming to be able to do someday. i have one macro lens, a panasonic one, and i have ordered a raynox dcr-250, and am also ordering the nikon 5t and 6t. lot of expense, but will be worth it in the long run i feel. quality. how do you get so close to the dragonfly withoutfrightening it off?

Always amazing macros from you guys. I believe some of you must be insect charmers (like snake charmers). I can't get these buggers to remain still long enough for a decent shot.
