Well, I was playing with my new lens that I got for free from ebay (details here: http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=94) I was wondering around the yard when I noticed this dragonfly perched on a garden decoration. Snapped a couple from way out 205mm then slowly worked my way closer until I was in the macro range of this lens. Here is my favorite shot. Taken around f/11 (give or take, can't remember exactly) with on-board flash.

Full Frame:


100% Crop (100% Clip for Hayward):

Great macro shot, those dragons can be quite difficult to capture.
