Photographing Dragonflies for this year is soon coming to an end. I am only seeing a random one here or there in the local parks. This image of a male Slaty Skimmer was taken with a 300mm lens with a 1.4X Teleconverter on a Canon 7D. The 5 handheld images were taken at different focus points along the dragonfly and branch @ f/8 to keep a softer background but have detail on the wings, body & branch it was on.
Very nice, Reed, the curly-cue leaves adds a nice bonus touch!
Thanks so much Donna! They are fun to photograph!
Nice work, Reed!
Thanks so much Steve! This year there were fewer Dragonflies in the Parks and Fields we usually photograph in!
Great result !
Thanks So Much! They are fun Photo Subjects!
