    Hi Again:

    I see that some of you folk liked my two pics of the immature male Common Whitetail dragonfly. Here is a different one this time a female Dot-tailed Whiteface. She is hard to spot on account of her high transparency.

    I see you have one too.

    I spent two nights in your town & then leaving from Manchester AP customs pulled the lining out of my brief case. ?? I could understand it coming from Amsterdam but not going back.

    Nice shots. I use to have a S1 IS and I loved it. I actually still have it but it's broken. :grumpy:

    Ok, you got me seeing new things tonight in the garden, the photo sucks but I was very excited. I would never have noticed if I hadn't just looked at your beauty. She's lost her head behind the stem and you almost can't see her but I thnk she's the same kind?

    Whatever comes with the Canon S5 IS. Hey, I am new to this Digital stuff.

    As a teenager I bought a Minolta SLR ($215) & folk raved about my pictures. I wanted to make a living in photography but reality, girl friend , marriage, pay work, children etc. wiped that idea out. My wife of 44 years, bought me a digital Nikon 2100, about four years ago for Christmas, so I could post pictures on the Internet (woodworking) forums I enjoyed. I was getting frustrated trying to do nature shots with the pocket camera & with permission bought the Canon S5 IS this year. It seemed like an extravagant expense for we pensioners but after visiting this forum I find most folk here spend more for a lens.

    You may be correct & your photo demonstrates how hard they are to detect when at rest.

    Wow, I need to send a link of this to my mother. She is obsessed with dragonflies and I know she would adore this.

    This is one I took with my S5 a few months back.
