Don't stop! These are great - the first two heron pics are super.

You did well on the dragonflies, except that the Halloween Pennant is actually the closely related Banded Pennant(the otherwise similar Halloween one has fully orange wings and lacks black at the wingtips). The unidentified dragonfly is the unimaginatively named Four-Spotted Pennant. The butterfly is aGulf Fritillary.


Keep them coming!

Fantastic shots, I love the twins, did you use the DA* 300mm F4 for the dragons as well ?

I'm with everyone else. Fantastic shots. Too hard to choose a favorite.

Used DA* 300mm for all. Focuses to 4.5 ft, ratio of 1/2.4.

Leaves space to not distract subject as much as shorter Macro Lens when you have to get in close.
