Great photos, I love macro shots.
Hope I'm not going to steer your thread off in a direction you don't want, but I just wanted to ask you and others how you get these fabulous shots. Do you sit and wait, hoping a Dragonfly will land on the leaf you've focused on? I'd really love to capture sharp shots like this but I find it so difficult and yet macro photography is probably my favourite type of photography.
I tried to take some pictures of some honey bees buzzing around some lavender the other day, and they were either out of focus of only half the bee was in frame.
I have some macro tubes to fit my minolta 50mm f1.4 lens, is this a good place to start, or should I really be looking into buying a proper macro lens.
I love the way you did these.....really a beautiful presentation....
anxious minds wanna know.....
Further thought, sometimes easier to rock the camera backwards and forwards to bring things into focus rather than trying to adjust the lens.
Wow, that is quite something!Dragonflies like sun and heat. I remember long ago rowing for a few hours way up on the Hudson River. I had a dragonfly perched on my nose looking up at me for about 2 hours, never really moving.
