I found this male Blue Dasher Dragonfly on a small branch at a local park. I was using a 400mm DO lens on a Canon 1D mkIV thinking I would be photographing birds. But I had a set of extension tubes in my photo vest which enabled me to get a series of very closeup images to make a 3 horizontal image pano Portrait of the Blue Dasher. Images taken @ f/13 with fill flash (Canon 550 EX with a Better Beamer Flash Extender).

Great shots, Reed!!
Thanks Donna! They are fun to photograph! Plus they can be challenging to get good images so more of a challenge!
Wow! Fantastic close-up, Reed. 😄
Thanks so much Jane! They are fun to photograph! Takes some practice to have uncluttered backgrounds! That is why I usually shoot a series of images at different focus points to get what I want in focus, And using a wider f/stop to get uncluttered smoother backgrounds. Thanks again!😊
Focus stacking sure makes for crisp images all the way through. Bravo. 🙂
Thanks Khurt! They are fun to photograph!
