On the plus side, a flash would have probably put a sparkle in the eye, which I always like to see with bird and wildlife shots. Again, nicely done.



    thanks Jonathan.


    I don't have a flash yet, all funds going towards a supertele. Not decided on which, I wish there was a 200-900mm f/3.2L IS USM lens that weighed like 1 pound.

    Brendan, I totally agree with Jonathan, I like to see some catch light in the bird's eye.

    Be more realistic, I'll be very happy if they can make a 600mm 5.6 weighed less than 4 pound (which is handholdable for me)with a price tag of $4500-$5000[:P]

    John,


    Very nice captures. The dragon fly is a great shot. I usually have to walk quite a distance with the boys in the wagon to even see dragon flies and they are very skittish most of the time. The one I captured was having a snack so he let me get good and close. I haven't seen a blue dragon like the one you captured. I will definitely be on the lookout. Great shots.


    Jayson

    Thanks, Jayson! At that location, these little blue guys (called "Blue Dasher") are all over the marsh, hundreds of them, so there's lots of opportunities to shoot them here. They perch all over the place, and seem to re-visit the same perch many times, so although the above shot was handheld, there's time to set up a tripod if you like.


    I saw a very striking one fly by me the other day, a damselfly called the Ebony Jewelwing (I think) - electric blue body and completely jet black wings. Unfortunately, it zipped by without landing, and I've only seen the one. I'll be on the lookout, too!

    I left my coffee cup outside the other day, and this guy crawled inside and started smiling:

    I don't like this last as much (needs more DOF, for one thing), but it lets you see the scale:
