    Testing the Machine Guns speed, and I still haven't gone to hi speed :)

    the eyes should be better, but think the wings are about right

    The big ones never seem to stop


    At least the little ones will stop for second


    And since you've hung in till the end here's a Butterfly Kiss for ya :)

    Sweet captures, Ben. No easy feat trying to follow those guys with a 300mm. The first one reminds me of the dragon fly on the beginning of the movie, "Men in Black"

    Impressive shooting Ben. 8)
  6. Wow! Love that first one, dark face and all! I've thought about trying this but thought it would be silly. Now I'm glad to see someone else doing it and doing it very well! :)
  7. Very good captures of a difficult subject matter. I've been working diligently to get a good clear shot of DF this summer but not yet. You've done well.

    Thanks Keith.
    I found that by watching them they will hover in same location over and over again, so I prefocus on that spot and when they enter I let the Machine Gun let loose. Sometimes win Sometimes loose :)
