still a few Dragons around this time of year :mrgreen:
Great trio of shots with some really fantastic lighting to them - mind if I ask what you were using for the lighting?
The second shot really stands out - great sharpness on those massive eyes!
Wow, 2 is amazing. Great focus, great colors and crisp. Love #2 because of the detail but they are all great.
Thanks for the comments
these were all shot with a Canon 40D with a Sigma 105mm macro lens, for light I use a Canon 430ex off camera mounted on a Novoflex flash bracket then diffuse the light with a Lumiquest softbox, all shots handheld,,
thanks again for looking and commenting
The second photo is indeed a real dazzler! Yowza! That's simply beautiful detail. Just super.
Very well done.
These are pretty effin' sweet.. I cant wait to get my macro setup!
#2 is spectacular, really holds my attention and draws me back for another look.
thanks again for the comments :thumbup:
All are excellent! But #2 is so special because we could never get that much detail with our own naked eye, let alone get that close to a dragonfly without it fluttering off. Wonderful color as well.
Excellent series - the second and third stand out for me.
