    next year I am going after these on a mission with the macro and tripod. These things are beautiful.
  2. Very very nice glenn, really like the first damsel and the composition. Hummm wonder if they glow in the dark??? :smile:
  3. Beautiful, Glenn. I bet with a tripod and macro lens you could get some even better ones!

    Which nuclear plant is this?
  4. Thanks! The plant is in Dixon, Il. I believe it's the one my ex's cousin runs or ran.
  5. Those are really beautiful Damsels!

    Nice series, Glenn!

    Beautiful damselfly. #1 of the damselfly shots is superb.
  7. Thanks Torben, Jukka. I really want to nail these things next year. They are real perchers and I know if I pick a spot and wait I can macro em with a tripod and the 90mm. As you guys know these perchers often keep coming back to the same twig over and over so it's just a matter of waiting.

    Nice Damsel Glenn. There are supposed to be Ruby Spots around here but I have yet to find them! But, there's always next year.... hopefully I will have a camera by then!

    Lovely shots. They look quite big!
  10. I think we all hope you have one by then. Missing your shots. Those Rubyspots may be just coming out now. I can't imagine that where I saw them was any different than some other places I had been earlier.

    Wow nice looking damsel. I hope you get him with your macro lens. Would love to see it a little closer. Thanks for posting these.

    cheers, Mark
