    #1 is an excellent capture. I think #2 is a little OOF and cutting off the tail on #3 hurts the image somewhat.

    Thanks for sharing.

    It's actually a damselfly, as indicated by wings touching one another (as opposed to spread out) when at rest. Great shots, though!

    also the big flared lights in #3 hurt the image.

    Thanks, I knew it didnt look like a regular dragonfly. It was alot smaller and the wings were always together when at rest. Thanks.


    The lights that are showing in #3 are actually reflections off water droplets. This was taken right next to the pool. I was actually on the edge of the pool , so I could have the grass as a background. Not sure what I could of done to prevent that....any ideas? Or just not a good way to take a picture?

    Thanks for the c&c
