I'm sure it did Donna. Amazing shot with everything right, sharp with good bokeh. I've tried macro tentatively and I appreciate how difficult it is. Especially as this dragonfly(?) is in mid flight. Incredible achievement. Cheers, Mal

Spot on sharp! Wow! Fantastic capture.

You said it took you a long time. Must have happened in a flash of a second. Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean. What do you mean by a 'long time'?

Thank you Bob! It took quite a while to get the shot...I would get it in focus and press the shutter and the dragonfly would dart off! Eventually after 'a long time' I managed to get this shot..... Smile

I love this, Donna, especially the wing movement. Stunning shot. Your patience and diligence most certainly paid off. Terrific workSmileCat

Can't help but agree with all of the above. Fantastic shot Donna. Just when I think you can't get any better you come up with something like this.
