    A couple of so so pics from this afternoon. The moth really fooled me for a moment, thought certain that it was a butterfly. The dragonfly is pretty hum-drum, and the common name white tailed applies to the male whose abdomen is almost totally white. This one happens to be a female.

    Comments, criticisms, suggestions always appreciated of course.

    My best,

    Jerry, these are not so so. They are excellent. You are way too modest. :wink:

    I like them both, but especially the first. I don't think that I have ever seen this species before.
  3. See now, I like the 2nd shot. Different strokes.... Brown dragonfly against old, grey, weathered wood~nice!! :)
  4. Same as Kevin, I like #2 for the same reasons. I think most of the problems with the D2X is to find the proper adjustments in the camera. With my 5700 it took me at least 3 months to get decent pictures.
