    It seems like it has been quite a while since I posted any dragons.
    These are from today, went out for an hour or so...

  3. Awesome Paul, I particularly like 1 & 3. I just found a place to shoot dragons, while not equipped to do it today, I am anxious to get back and give it a go...

    Kent,
    Thanks. No, these were shot with the 300mm alone.

    Thanks Rich.
    I look forward to seeing some dragons with that new picture box of yours.

    I'm glad you got out again. Not bad for an hours shooting. Those shots are excellent.

    Thanks Torben. It was getting late in the evening and there weren't too many dragons still out. I saw more Blue Dashers than anything.

    Thanks Paul. Hows that new camera treating you?
     
  8. Great shots, Paul!

    Especially #2 is excellent!
     
  9. So far so good - I haven't played much with the adjustments - my bigger concern is with the rattlesnakes that hang out in my dragon field :p
     
  10. Excellent as always. I must go back and use your id's to recheck mine.

    Thank Jukka. Nice to be back out there.

    Just make sure you get a shot of the Rattler Paul, that way you can identify the species for anti venom AND have a picture to share here!:biggrin:

    Thanks Glenn.
