I like them all, especially the shots of the damselfly. The shot up the creek (DSC06608) was tough. In scenes like that, your attention is naturally drawn to the distance, but in this scene, the foreground is bright and the distant scene is dark, so it didn't work very well.

But that lens is pretty good.

Thanks for the entomology lesson. I didn't know they were damselflies (never heard of them).

The lens is in excellent shape but the hood has been super-glued back together after a complete split. It still attached and the crack will not affect the performance.
