Thanks, everyone, for looking and the kind words!...and thanks to all who gave me tips and tricks on macro shots..I was able to try the focus lock thing and the picture burst which I think helped..and the time I had to think because he was a little shaken was a big plus.Tachikoma..as Roy mentioned..you may be able to find them in the morning when it is a little cooler..I remember seeing them at my old place sitting on walls and leaves motionless until they warmed up abit..I hope you find your dragon!:-)

Very nice and very close! I have not yet been lucky enough to find a df as cooperative as yours and Roy's, you did a good job taking advantage of this one.

Hi Lisa,

WOW! Take a well deserved bow for these!

A cooperative subject and all the tips in the world don't help if the photographer doesn't execute when the opportunity arises -- as you obviously did with these.

Very nice work, and we'll all be looking forward to more, I'm sure.

Scott

You're kindness was paid off with his co-operation and you did a terrific job of capturing his beauty, well done.

Thankyou Rodney and Scott!..I always thank my live subjects such as birds and bugs when they cooperate for a photo.I would do the same to the flowers and plants but they don't seem to care one way or the other about it..lol:-)
