Become Close Friends With A Dragonfly

Holds up pretty well when viewed in larger size.

  

It has been a month and a day since I showed a dragonfly photo. The 'to be processed' folder is filling up with them, so here is another one...different species. (sorry, I don't know species names.)

 

No extension tubes, no tripod, no reversed lens or teleconverter used on this shot. Just kneeling in the weeds at pond's edge, handholding* the long macro lens. Seems to have worked out pretty well using autofocus and aperture priority AE.

    

*(No image stabilization.)
