Not sure if we call this a bird for the bird section but it does fly... Anyway beat me up on it if you want :smile:

I walked out of the garage and almost walked into this large Dragonfly that sat on our climbing rose busch. I ran into the get the D3, 105mm VR and SB-800 and thought for sure that it would be gone. But it sat there nicely for several minutes while I fired away...

Wow those are some very sharp pictures there Andreas. How did you get it to sit still for you? They always fly away when I try. Very nice. Those are some fine roses also.

Fantastic shots Andreas. I've yet to try my 105VR on the D3, looks like a sweet combination. You were fortunate in having the Dragonfly sit still as long as it did for you...very well done. I really like how the background roses are rendered in a soft OOF mood.

Thanks Louis, most lenses look good with a D3 behind, but the 105 VR does better then ont he D2X never liked it on the x....

Gee, Andreas, couldn't you get some more wing detail????? :wink::biggrin::smile:

These are grand. So nice that it sat so long for you. I wish some of the small birds would be so cooperative.
