So I present my first Dragon Fly :

Excellent capture! Don't think I've ever seen one with that coloring. It will be next Spring before they start showing up here.

That's a great picture old4570, I'm just going to get back to macro after 30 some years away from it. Would you post a picture of your Macro Rig.

Thanks

Now I just have to locate a flash bracket like you have. I have what is called a "Butterfly" bracket by some but it's on the clumsy side and too big for hand holding. Can you name the source for yours?

That is stunningly sharp, Matt! It almost doesn't look real! Perhaps your best to date? Fantastic!
