Nice photos, especially #2. Could you give some photo info please? ISO, focal length, shutter speed, aperture... Thanks. Jon

Hi Zeek,

Greetings from a fellowbug paparazzi. Damsel flies make good subjects and will sometimes hang around long enough to experiment with. There is no exif data in your pics, but it looks to me like you might benefit from a smaller aperture and greater depth of field. Only the second shot is in focus from tip to tail. If you stop down to F11 or smaller, it can make a huge difference in how much bug will fit into your focus circle.

Thanks. I set my aperature from f8-11 & ISO 400-800 on Av mode (So shutter speed varies). Focal length is 300mm for all. I still own a flash, so going beyond f11 is almost impossible especially on a cloudy day. Will try f13 or more if there's more light.

BTW shot 2 has the most cropped, compared with shot 3-5.
