I really like the backlit shot... really nice pictures. Like Roy said, what happened to the exif?

Probaably stripped out in pp. All (more than I put up) at 300mm in green mode, AF or manual focus. It kept flying off hawking insects and only returning to sit momentarily - no time to do any fiddling. I had to clone out some glary reflective leaves around the margins of the first two. There was a high sun angle - the first is side lit, the second backlit, and the third fullfrontal illumination.

We have had two or three of these around the yard for weeks, but never before had one selsct a decent perch for photographing. It is a mixed blessing having them around, because they have reduced the mosquito population which has been bedevilling us (theyaren't called them mosquito hawks for nothing), but if they emerged from our backyard pond, their predaceous and voraceous larvae probably ate up enough ofour mosquito fish to allow the mosquito population to build up. Kind of like they are farming their own food supply!

Thanks to all for looking and commenting.
