It was a cool early morning and I ran into 2 different dragonflies that were quite cooperative. I remembered to bring my 36mm kenko extension tube with me this time when I went hiking. I was actually surprised that they didn't fly off as I took the time to take off my lens and attached the extension tube. These shots were done handheld. Exif intact.

1)



2) Same dragonfly as the first but different angle.





3)



Thanks for looking.

Great shots, Hung - sharp and perfect DOF. I don't think I have seen this one before (or looked closely enough to notice the pattern).

Fantastic especially knowing that they were shot handheld. Another proof of theCanon 400mm as a dream lens for wildlife photography.

Nice ones, Hung. That 400mm makes a pretty decent macro...not to be a macro.

I use mine for just about everything.

Thanks everybody. For a non-macro designated lens, it does a pretty decent job with the extension tube. However it is quite a cumbersome set up. The lens is quite long as it is and with the extension tube, it gets even longer. It definitely presents a challenge when handholding. I try to shoot in bright light inoder to keep my shutterspeed up to minimize hand motion blur. I might eventually add a monopod just for added stability. So far so good.
