    I'm glad you shot those dragonflies instead. They are beautiful and as usual, so are the shots.

  9. We seem to have a shortage of butterflies by me too. But your dragons are beautiful! I am beginning to lust after that 300 f/4.

    Thanks, Ohcorgis. The 300 mm is a lens worth lusting for, but you have a 200 mm micro! What kind of working distance does the 200mm have?

    Very nice work. How early is "early morning?" Still cool enough so these guys are a bit calmer?

    Thanks Larry. These guys were not calm at all. This was within 2 hours after sunrise.

  17. I'm curious what the PN-11 does to the 300mm F4 here. What is the working distance and ratio?
