Just got around finishing those. All taken @ 400mm with Sigma 135-400mm from a tripod, during a visit to the Phoenix Botanical Garden. I had my trusty Vivitar macro with me, for Butterflies and other stuff, but that Dragon was just way out of reach.

Other pictures from that trip - please visit here:

Excellent shots of the dragonfly, esp at 400mm.

I like the butterfly shots as well.

Awesome pictures. If my enthusiasm is a little less than normal, it's because I looked at your butterflies. Today I finally got one that looked good enough to keep and I was feeling quite proud of myself - until I saw yours. Yours are SO much better, really good.

Heck yeah, post them. I love looking at other peoples photos but the most important measure, IMO, is to get a shot that I am happy with.I get excited wheneverI get a macro that is the best bee/butterfly/wasp/etc that *I* have ever taken. Other peoples photos give great new ideas and challenges.

Oh, and nice dragonfly shots. I got somedecent closeups on one today, but only because he was stuck to a plant with adhesive seedpods. Since he was nice enough to pose, I freed him.
