I was in Barnes & Noble yesterday and was browsing through some photography books when I came across a book about macro photography. The book was a collection of macro photos taken of different subjects, one of which was dragonflies. The author stated that dragonflies are difficult to photograph because they seldom stay still long enough to focus on.
It reminded me of some pictures I captured last summer of a dragonfly fluttering around some of the water plants in the pond in our courtyard. I was delighted when he rested long enough for me to get some close-up shots of him. I hope you will click on some of the pictures to see this amazing little creature up close.
I recently sold my Canon macro lens because soon after I bought it, Canon came out with their EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM Macro Lens which has an "image stabilization" feature. For fledgling photographers like myself, this is a "must have" feature on any camera. I'm going to order one next week and can't wait to capture the wonders of Spring ... up close and personal.
