Medium sized scarlet dragonfly.
Fairly common across the UK. This one was very friendly and actually landed on my hand. :)
Awesome pics. The detail on the eye is amazing :)
It seems really good. I find the biggest problem with it is me scaring off everything before I get close enough to take a picture. No complaints about the lens though.
I just got the same lens. I'm just getting used to it as well, but I really like it so far.
As I say I haven't had it long but the results have been good when I get it right. All credit to the subject in this shot. One very relaxed dragonfly. :)
Thanks for letting me know, I'm currently looking for a good macrolens for my Canon, and this one certainly looks like it does a good job (obviously with credit to the photographer)!
Thanks Elsa. I am using a canon macro EF-S 60mm. I haven't had it long so I am just getting used to it. :)
Awesome shot Doryreed! What lens do you use?
