    I just happened to have my D2X sitting nearby while my wife and I were enjoying our dinner out on the deck on a gorgeous Summer evening, and this dragonfly decided to join us.
    He sat there for over 10 minutes, letting me adjust the camera several times and he didn't even flinch.
    I guess he knew he was being photographed and decided to pose for me.

    I couldn't resist putting these up on the Cafe for critique. My apologies to dial-up users, as these are 100% crops and fairly large.

    Photos are straight out of the camera. Guess I got a nice sharp copy of the 18-200 lens. Cool!! :cool:

    Ken,

    Very nice shots, it seems that they will pose for you for I had one
    that stayed about 5 minutes on a branch while I took his picture, I wll
    see if I can find it.
    Thanks for showing us.

    Phil.........:smile:
