Never saw one before.
We can't identify it.
There's no photo there...
Myself, I never know the difference between a dragonfly and a damselfly, either, and wouldn't even know WHERE to begin to look for differences. Do dragonflies have four wings? Damselflies only two?
But - without a photo ... no identification at all. By no one...
Damselflys fold up their wings at rest & Dragons are spread.
Ah :idea: - that's the difference. I never knew. Seems like all we got here are damselflies then. Can't say I've ever seen one with the wings spread, but I must admit (me not being too deeply into macro and so on) that I have not looked very closely as yet.
well, one learns a bit about entomology as well as photography here. Cool:thumbup:
i thought the only difference was that dragonflies can breathe fire.
I dont know what happened with that. Sorry guys.
Anyway here is the photo.
Another problem I can't seem to solve is when I upload an image, the file goes in 7-10 megs large , then when it's uploaded, it becomes like 535K.......a fraction of the size it was when I uploaded.
It loses detail..........and then when you click on it , it blows up to the size of the EIFFEL TOWER, which pisses me off.
Even when you don't click on the photo, when posted on this site is like 4 times as large.
But here is the photo.
I wouldn't mind Ron or Laphotos critique on this either.
I went for the rule of thirds, shot it at 300mm at f6.3 at 1/400, ISO 400.
Needed the speed because the wind was blowing.
I wanted to get some of Rons Bokeh in there.
The image is sharp as a tack looking at it on windows 7 image viewer.
That is a robber fly
post it moar bigger
Hey I have an Idea.
Why don't people like you get the HELL off this thread...............stop trying to start sh** and go about your own business.
I didn't ask for your critique. I specifically asked for Ron and Laphoto's critique BECAUSE they know how to deal with critique without being an ashhhole.
You and your buddies on the other hand. Not so much.
I come back & see my post is gone??? This happens all to often & is quite irking. Second try -
That is a sharp pic of a Robber-fly, however the background is noisy. You used ISO 400 when you had enough light to shoot @ ISO 200 & still have adequate shutter speed. Try to keep your ISO low to minimize the potential for noise (graininess).
