    I took some shots of Dragonflies. I haven't figured out how everyone gets theirs as sharp as they are. Maybe it's my cheap lens. It's a Tamron 70-300mm Macro LD Di. I also used a tripod. Any C&C is appreciated. Thanks.

    i think you did a good job given the situation. The sharp photos come from a true macro lens that gets you right up to the creature.

    I like the 2nd photo best, great coloring

    I was wondering. Mine says Macro (1:2) on it, but I almost think it means it can just focus closer in that mode (it allows you to move the focus ring in another area). I'll have to look into a macro lens. Thanks.

    1:2 means that the image on the sensor is 1/2 as large as real life, so a 2-inch wide image should fill the frame of your 1-inch wide sensor.
