Thanks, I did - Mohammed Ali's trademark theme comes to mind: "Float like a butterfly . . . ."

That is a lovely shot, penolta - definitely better than your first one. Well done!

I think I want to change ...

One of the ponds where I normally go for dragonfly shots has been cleaned up. They removed all willow scrubs next to the water.

We've got a dragonfly/damselfly 'Willow Emerald Damselfly' that lays its eggs on the branches of this tree.

So the only tree thats left has some extra visitors.

I really liked this picture when you posted it in the other thread. It sure fits this topic as your DOF is certainly effective for your subject.

I've taken several similar type of pictures, though the facility I was photographing wasn't as nice as this one. For some reason using a small DOF isn't as effective as this picture.

Rodney - I feel like I'm spying on the galah. While it might not be a "perfect" bird picture, it's perfect for this challenge and has lots of feeling in it.

What a great pattern between the red seats and the light colored numbers, very nice!

It's getting toward the end of the month - has anyone else got something worth posting? I still haven't taken anything that is appropriate to this topic, though I had a chance to photograph Mt. Olympus today, it wasn't shrouded in clouds early this morning, though they moved in before we got back to our car. The leaves are just turning so it was very pretty. Maybe tomorrow, I'll find something appropriate, though it's raining tonight so I don't know how much picture-taking I'll do.

This photo replaces my earlier entry.
This Blue and Yellow Macaw was photographed with the K20D and manual SMC 55mm F1.8 lens. Wide open, 1/250 sec, no flash. It's taken through the steel cage bars, using the lens close to the cage and wide open to supress the view of the bars. You can see a faint vertical banding which is produced from the cage steel work.
