    Awesome captures..........I'm curious as to what lens you were using to? Any extension tubes?

    WOW, amazing work on the last HP shot. Are those EGGS on the underside of her tail??? WOW!!! They are all excellent, but that third one is stellar.:890::890::890:

    Great stuff Glenn. Beautiful dragonflies and the damsel is pretty nice too.
     
  7. Thanks all. The widow was shot with the 300/4. All the rest were the Sigma 150. No tubes, etc. Kelly they are not eggs. Someone had mentioned on another post that they are some kinda life that is just hitching a ride to another location.
    I've yet to really test that 300/4 but truthfully on some test shots I did on one of the cats I can not see a ton of difference between that and the 70/300 vr at 300mm and same settings. May not be a fair test but that's all I can go by now.

    Nice looking widow! I just don't know how you are getting so much detail. How close are you getting to the dragons?
     
  9. Real nice shots Glenn. I have only seen a couple of Halloweens this year as well.
     
  10. The widow was with the 300 so probably 5 feet or whatever min focus is

    Excellent!
     
  12. A most excellent set. After seeing these I'm not going to bother with posting the few I've taken of late.
     
  13. Well I'd like to see them if for no other reason they may be of bugs I never see near me.
     
  14. Superb Glenn, what a beauty!!!
     
  15. Thanks. The only other one I ever saw had red stigmas. Assuming it's the male.
     
  16. Very nice set. Really like the side view picture.
     
  17. It´s a great looking Dragon for sure!

    I like the 2nd the best!
