I was missing my dragonflies so I went back in time a little and discovered one that I had overlooked . Hand held in macro mode, cropped in PS.

    Ohmygawd--and hand-held yet! Great image--incredible detail. I love the sweep of his wings across the frame.

I do love this dragon! I think I spent quite a long time laying low in the grasses beside the pond just waiting for this one! Thanks so much, Jenny!

This close up is just fantastic as the wings are part of a full frame composition and have wonderful design elements as well as great detail. This is just fantastic, Laurie!!!

Thanks so much Susana and Barbara! Barbara, my Olympus only has one lens...a wide zoom. I did have settings set on macro mode. With this camera you really have to be right in their face. I was just an inch or so away from this dragon!

Thanks Arnie! I must have taken hundreds down by the pond getting eaten alive by all kinds of little critters before I got this one just right! The shot did not come easy!!!
