dragonfly. at the rookery

Venice Rookery in Venice, FL

I was photographing Great Blue Herons and their chicks when
this lovely creature flew right down on a branch above the
water. It's a strange macro, taken with a 400mm lens. To
see the heron chicks, and more click HERE

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel ,Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Tamron 1.4X teleconverter 1/250s f8 ISO 200 full exif

This is quite a shot Mary - your timing has to have been amost instant because these critters never stay around long. Beautiful!

beautiful, they are so amazing

Wow, jypsee...this is amazing!

Jealous. They never present themselves like that around here. Usually the wings are back and they are down in the bush. I get very frustrated trying to shoot dragonflys.

excellent job!

Oh, it IS in the exif. Still the color comments...etc.

Awesome!! Tell me more about this lens. Brand, max aperature, and how well does it autofocus with the 1.4tele? How true do you find the colors? I can't judge from these, not having seen the real thing.

nice macro

Wow that is SHARP and what a fantastic "macro"! Did you have that 400/5.6 on a tripod? If not, you must have hands of steel :-)
Guest 14-Apr-2004 03:38
Now, this is great!
