Hi! I was out shooting wildlife images this weekend, after actually caught some foxes in the camera I was still most happy with the "small world" images. These are resized fullimages, just contrast adjusted, except the last image which is cropped and 'neat imaged'. FZ30 + Soligor Close-Up lens, 3 dptrs.

#1 This dragon fly was special... flying around me for long, sitting down several times just beside and let me took many close-ups. I even started to think about whether there's a thing like intelligent insects...

Extremely nice and clear pics! I especially like the first and last.
I've had one or two dragonflies like this one where they just hung around posing for the camera. Others seem to know what you're up to and are masters at avoiding being photographed... just like people.

Awsome! Your macros open up a whole new world. Insects are both beautiful and weird. Donna

You certainly can be proud of yourself, your camera and your close-up lens. We have seen quite a lot of dragonflies in this forum, but thethird pic hereis just razor sharp and beats all I have seen. Very well done.
