blue dasher dragonfly,, in your face :mrgreen:
Wow, that is gorgeous!
Amazing! I can never get that close. What was your set up?
Fantastic... What lens and f/stop?
:thumbup: Awesome photo!!
thanks for the comments all,, this was shot using a Canon 40D, Sigma 105mm macro lens, no tubes,,
f 13 ISO 200
Canon 430ex off camera mounted on a Novoflex flash bracket, flash was diffused with a Lumiquest softbox,,
Thanks again for looking and commenting
How did you get the little bugger to sit still long enough?
^^ what that lot said up there - great closup face shot of a dragon!
I've got a few closish ones, but they are so flightly - even more than butterfiles - and never got this close
thanks again,, these Dashers are pretty willing subjects, for me at least, I can approach them and get within 10-12" of their face and blast flash shot after flash shot before they finally fly away,, a guy on another site nicknamed me the "Dragon Whisperer" LOLOL Ive had a way with these guys and other insects as well,,
Are those lips? :lmao::lmao::lmao:
