These aren't very common in my area, so I was thrilled to see this one

What model airplane is that in your avatar? My dad was a B-29 navigator.

It is a B-24, my grandfather was a top gunner/engineer on them. I like the other ones too. I notice photographers seem to like dragon flies. The few macro shots I every tried with my Panasonic FZ were of dragonflies.

d flies are cool because of the detail they present. they are easy to take also, but to get a winner the background is just as important as the subject..

focus is everything. you have to get the eyes..

Very nice macro shots. I'm impressed with the 50-200 lens. I might just
have to put that on my xmas list. Can't wait to see more of your pics.

Very nice, as usual! I love everyone's dragonflies - the few times I've seen them they haven't been still long enough to capture. And they are SO neat looking.
