Checkered Setwing

Uploaded: June 22, 2007


This is the female Checkered Setwing dragonfly I photograped at the local lake on 06/21/07.
Conditions were cloudy so I tried ISO 800.

Aperture = f5.6
Shutter = 1/400s
ISO = 800
Focal Length = 300mm
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens

Wow, this is a beauty. I'd love to see one of these. We have some of the same dragons so maybe someday I'll run across this one. The details and coloring are right on. Nice job. #4605656
