Finding a few of these about lately....cheers....Don

Perched on a branch. I was able to get real close to this guy.

A few not so good attempts for flying, or rather, hovering dragonflies. Even at Av 1/1250, it still isn't fast enough to freeze the wings. I'll try 2000 or higher next time. Shot these using manual focus. Seemed easier than AF. Wish they came out a little sharper. Just slightly oof.....back to the drawing board.....

cool shots don. where these shot with the 1.4x tc and 300 f4? maybe if you shot with just the 300 then you would have better luck with the autofocus? do you use center point focus only? hope to see more shots.
