  4. I am jalous too! :-)) Wonderful!

    What a pity it is, this dragonfly is seen in the company where I always take pictures. And last year they removed a lot of wood to the company around. They did the dragonfly and now I see far fewer species. This year I have unfortunately not seen. They had better leave the old ones in my opinion.

  5. Geat shot! Did you stack multiple photographs in post processing for this kind of depth of field, or was it a single shot? Sometimes I try macros and the DOF always seems a problem, so one half of a milimeter is sharp, the rest is fading or faded. Posted 7 years ago
