Default A couple of macros from the driveway

I was out in the driveway late this evening working on my car and boat when I spotted a dragon fly. went in house and grabbed the camera and slapped the macro plus the VIV 2X converter. as bad as my hands were shaking I was surprised they come out with a reasonably good image

Dragon













Its past my bedtime so I'll post the ones I got of a wasp tomorrow,
Cheers,

1 and 4 are my favorites , considering the f3.5 you couldn't have been more spot on.

Great shots

Thank you guys,
I really appreciate the kind words.
Now, if I can just get them to sit still long enough to for some multi frames for stacking.
