    Here is another in the beach walk series. No roos. Just a fishing boat.

    Monterey Beach with the ubiquitous fog bank burning off. As those who visit the Central and Northern coast of California in the summer know, there is about 5 hours of sunshine per day. Then the fog rolls back in.

    Nice.

    Dragonflies!

    Three shots from today's trip to dragonfly heaven. (local park pond)
    Two are the same species exhibiting typical male perching postures, The tail up one is an aggressive and possessive one. "This is MY perch!"

    Love the beach and the tree. And the composition of the 2nd shot is challenging the rule. I like it.

    Falcon, Great dragonfly shots. As usual.

    Thanks Tim. I know that the second shot was a rule bender, but like you I thought it worked anyway.

    Falcon, excellent! Always like your DF shots. Ours don't sit still long enough to shoot. Are those super crops, or are you getting that close?

    D70fan;
    5-10 feet average distance with the 70-300 at 300. Minimum focus for the Zoom is 4.9'. I can get closer if I use the 150 Macro. They usually stay perched for long enough to get focused for the shot. Damselflies allow me to get closer, good thing as they are quite a bit smaller. some of them for tomorrow.
    Here is a full frame of the one on the leaf. The others are from a closer distance. This is usually about the furthest I would shoot unless it was an unusual pose or D'fly.

    Give it your best shots now guys. From the First of September this forum will be no more. I think I will be posting in facebook from then on.

    Falcon, All this time I thought you did it with a dedicate macro lens of some sort.

    Facebook is a little annoying cause every idiot with a camera thinks his pictures are the best thing since sliced bread. Would anyone be interested is a DCresource (closed) group on FB where we can continue to share stuff? (I know this is off topic but this is one of the few active topics)

    This is where the D7100 really shines (as does the Tammy 70-300 VC).

    I know facebook is the poorest substitute for a great site like this one. I mentioned it as a joke. Facebook is full of crappy shots of food and selfies. I tried joining another forum but it doesn't quite cut it, so I left.
