I LOVE them.

The lower one could benefit a bit from levels adjustment.

Very nice indeed. I especially like the dragonfly. Very crisp and colorful. Tack sharp. Wonderful as usual. Woody

Incredible as usual :D

Thanks all - I'll appreciate the comments and your time to look!

Frank: I think you're right. I should have adjusted it a bit. Thanks, now I see it!

nice pics!!!! how close to the dragonfly?? water birds are so neat to watch when they take off. they must be blessed as they can walk on water!!!

Dennis. The dragonfly was shot with my Nikon D100, flash sb-80dx and Nikkor 70-300mm. I was about 70cm away from the dragonfly. It was cropped afterwards and resized smaller for presentation here.
the 70-300mm is certainly not a macro/micro lens, but it can do a reasonable job - but not as good a the shot would have been with one of Nikon MICRO lenses.

Stunning work Klaus. They are both very, very good indeed. I realy like the colours of the Dragonfly, but there is a loevly richness to the colours of the Gull.
