Red Dragonfly at Santee Lakes

I took this picture yesterday at Santee Lakes using my 300mm F4 Nikon lens with a 1.4 TC. With the magnification setting for my sensor, I was effectively using a 630mm lens. I was hand holding so I shot wide open which was 5.6 so I had almost no depth of field. I'm going to a workshop on Sunday with Steve Cirone and he has a ring flash and some Nikon macro lenses that I'll be able to try. I'm hoping that with those I'll be able to get some DOF.

This looks best when viewed large against a dark background, and you can see it the way by pressing "L".
