  3. Torben, you must be getting more sun than we are in the UK. It hasn't stopped raining for weeks. Lovely pics...couldn't get anything from the EXIF...what lens were you using ??

    Great shots and nice variety, Torben. I wish we had a little more variety with our damsels -- I rarely see anything other than the ebony jewelwing.

    Thanks for your comment Charlie. It's been raining for the last couple of weeks more or less. We've had a few sunny periods Sunday and Tuesday where I took the chance to get out. Those shots were with the 300mm f/4. A couple of the shots were with extension rings. All shot in RAW. I use PS CS to open the files and they strip the exif data when converted to jpg. Very annoying.

    Thanks Jukka. That was late. There are a lot of L. Sponsa at my local water hole. If we ever get any sunshine again I'll go look for some C. virgo or splendens. I haven't seen any yet so I need to look elsewhere. I have a couple of ideas as to where they can be.
