    Talking Finally!!!

    Finally got a good in-flight shot of a dragonfly. Found this guy(?) as he patrolled a very restricted area following the same almost identical path, thus I was able to pre-set focus so only a slight adjustment had to be made as it flew slowly by my position.
    Tech data;
    ISO 400; F11; SS 1/320th
    Surprised that the Shutter speed was so slow yet still had quit a bit of detail. Lighting, natural noonish full sun.
    Tamron 70-300 Macro at 300mm; distance estimated at around 8-10'

    Wow, Falconest, great job finding one you could actually capture in flight. Might have been worth opening up the lens a stop or two to gain a little speed, but then you might have lost the needed DOF to capture the shot in focus.

    Great job with the in flight. Not easy to do even with knowing flight pattern.

    This little bug landed on our Thermos flask while having a picnic in a
    foresty area in Holand...

    STill flying!

    Looks like some sort of shield bug.
    Here are a couple more in-flight shots from tonite. Pretty much silhouettes because of the late afternoon sun. Much faster SS, still at F11.
    Might be the lastone for a while, we had quite a violent storm come through with about a half hour of heavy rain. That usually knocks down the d'flies for a while.
    We shall see.

    Red face So Much for the rain

    Went out tonite after dinner at a local Mickey D's (Mcdonalds). The rain didn't do anything bad, in fact there seemed to be more than last nite, and one loved posing for the camera.
    Part of a 5 shot sequence. I am putting the camera down now, and backing away slowly.
