Another beauty! Would love to hear any info on how you capture these... I've had limited success this close up!

Awesome details ...love the shadow! What lens are you using? I got out late yesterday and shot dragonflies. I had to use a 105mm F 2.8 Macro.... was getting close, but not that close.

Takes patience doesn't it? My experience is that they keep coming back to the same spot, every time they are spooked by me. At last they decide that I'm not a threat and take a rest.

Rare, though, to capture one with a shadow. Wonderful, Linda.

I don't have any patience whatsoever. At this age it's unlikely that I'll develop any, so if the bug is mobile, I'm probably going to leave it alone. You guys do them so good I can always look at yours.

Really like the presentation on this macro , lots of detail but from new perspective& the shadow is a great pick-up

Happy Shooting
