I finally took the plunge and photographed a dragonfly using 70-200 and 1.4 extender. I'm quite happy with the results without a macro lens. The goslings below are so absolutely photogenic that I can't stop posting them and I really respect what I've read about the parenting instincts of the Canada Goose. My apologies to those who think that goslings and Canada Geeseare a bit common.

The line andorder of nature (if human government was that orderly perhaps we would be better off)



That stare is hypnotic



Using light and color to try to help explain the magnificence of this tiny creature



My first insect post. I was mezmerized by the wings on this fellow



More cuteness (I think it's the same little critter from above -- the onewith the bead of water on its head -- I wish it could talk...maybe not)

I love all the geese ones. Especially the first. I like the way a goose at the front is looking back to see if everyone is still there.:-)
The feathers in the others are nice and sharp to.

really nice pictures! All are just beautiful. I also like the dragonfly shot very much. I'm into macro shots, somehow.

I don't blame you for wild-goose chasing. (Sorry.:sad

You've taken some beautiful photos. Like everyone else, it's the first picture that really grabs me--photographically, anyway, but those baby honkers are irresistible. So what if they're common? It isn't the rarity of the bird that makes the photo; it's the photographer.
