Macro magic...Superb Ray
Ray: Dragonflies are excellent subjects, Zed...but they can be a bit fidgetty.
woo hoo, now we're talking.
nice setings on this shot.
adds DOF, gets sharpness and uses the cameras ISO capabilities
enhances the photographers genius!!

Occasionally I remember to work those levers, buttons, knobs, Rob...that puts me in unfamiliar territory.

What for gentle looking, transparent wings, but they must be stable and steady- also soft looking phenomena can be strong! A refined pic!
Ray: Thanks, Philine.
Dragonfly wings seem to be very rugged, despite their flimsy appearance.
A great shot Ray, like the colours and focus.
Ray: So pleased you like this one, Nigel.
