Default Great Photo!

Did you use a Macro lens?


By the way, that's a Common Sanddragon (Progomphus obscurus). Found that on a Texas Dragonflies website.

Thanks felllas...

No macro lens used. It just happened to land a few yards from where I was so I zoomed in on it a bit. I am just learning to use the camera and I was plesantly surprised with the result.

Great photo! Amazing to catch him completely still like that so you even see the web of structure in his wings. Also, the fact that his head his cocked adds interest, almost as if he is wondering what this thing is with a big round eye and why is it looking at him.

Focus and composition are great. Try as I might, I can't think of anything negative to say about it. Great image!
