Dragonfly Closeups

I was going through some older backup hard disks and found a series of Dragonfly Closeup images. So I thought I would add them to the blog.

    • I think they were smiling! Most of these shots were from my old home. We took out a large pool and put in a pond with a waterfall. So I think they were used to me getting close!

    • Thanks! Even though they look like I am close, many of these are probably about 4 – 6 ft away. I had come up with a method using a 400mm lens and extension tubes then a 1.4x (or 2x) Teleconverter and depending on the distance another extension tube. Sometimes also some fill flash. If you search my blog I had a few posts on this technique.

    • Thanks Steve! I always liked things that fly! Started with aviation, then military aircraft, then aerobatic aircraft, then birds and now Dragonflies! I think I will go to more butterflies next! But the season is over for them! The Bald Eagle population will be growing at Blackwater NWR soon, so I will probably go to photograph them. Along with huge flocks of Snow Geese. Thanks again!
