hahaha... I was chasing him all over that granite bench the dragonfly was on.. and then he jumped on to the flagstones below it. I am trying to convince him to hold still long enough for a decent shot... and he finally stopped and gave me that look... like "Dude.. why are you messing with me?" That was the only decent shot of a dozen or so.. the little guy could move!

Very nice set Charlie, the damsel looks like I could reach out and pick it off the grass.

Thanks, PR! I need to get out more and shoot... another month or so, we will have more bugs available.

That dragonfly has some gorgeous colors in it--you need to go chase that thing down and get it from the front, Charlie! ;)

Man, I miss my macro lens...I've loaned it to my sister. I only intended to let her have it for a week, but it's been over a month now and to make matters worse, I found out on vacation that she hadn't even USED it in all that time. I've given her another week to actually use the thing and then I'm taking it back!!

Yvette, Thank you! It is a fun genre, although sometime less appreciated than infant photography for some reason! ;) lol!
