Lady's Slipper : I love #1 (for the perspective), 4 (for the detail) & 5 (for the Bokeh) - I've no idea how you can combine them all !!

I especially love the dragonflies - #3 is an absolute killer (those wings).

You have an amazing variety of life there.

Great shots as always fella!

Love that green beetle and the dragonflies, my Tamron is arriving tomorrow so hopefully will be able to join in on the bug-shooting action!

I like #1 and 4 best as both show lots of detail, but #2 looks like a shy girl, demurely hiding her face. And the picture is a hair soft due to the smaller dof, and that adds to the feeling of a shy, retiring subject. I really like it, it's got a neat feeling to it.

I can see that there will be a dragonfly in this months "stop motion" challenge. Not as "pretty" as the other more colorful shots, but really hard to get.

Ronny - Thanks for your very kind words, and helpful input as well!

Penolta - Thanks so much! Dragonflies are so much fun to watch and ID, and so tough (for me) to get good shots...
