Jukka and Torben,
See what you two have started.... Dragons, from everywhere.:biggrin:

These are from todays outing. I was finally able to get a couple of Darners...
The Oregon Swallowtail was just kind of an added bonus.

More beatiful shots Paul. You are getting sooo good. I like them all and are thrilled to see the Californian Darner. I looks a little bit like some of our Aeshna species that haven't begin to fly yet.

Thanks Torben,
I was really happy to get a shot at the Darner. It made the whole outing worth while. They are such a beautiful species and so different from most everything else flying around here. I am just waiting now to get another shot at the Sinuous Snaketail. I know they're here, shot one .... just haven't seen another.

Paul,
Your technique will develop. If you look at my previous dragon posts, starting with the first one, you will see a change in DOF, focus and clarity.

First Dragon post...

It is due to watching some of the greats here... Torben and Jukka primarily and getting advice, taking time and adjusting your style.

I'm still learning every time I go out.
