WOW! These are amazing..... my 50mm Macro could never do something like this
Thank you and your 50mm Macro could do these you'd just have to be about 4 inches away or you could be farther back and crop. I Highly recommend a long macro lens for it's working distance which is why I'm saving for Marc's lens (200mm f4).

Again, they are all superb ! But my favorite is the third one (in flight). It's the one where we distinguish the least amount of detail on the dragonfly, but its dynamism appeals to me. I can't imagine how hard it must have been to catch one in flight !
Thanks R and it wasn't bad he was just hovering on this one so it was much easier than it looks since the AF did what it was supposed to do.
