After a few shot with flash, the dragon fly always seem to be in a state of temporary blindness. I encountered a few occassion whereby it just stay there and my lens is just inches away. Be patience. Dragonflies are teretorial, they alay=ways come back to the same spot after a while.


Sulhan, very nice shot. Your macro shots are always as good.:thumbsup:

It looks cross-eyed to me :eek:

Off camera flash would have been better, but who am I too talk - very nice shot, well done.

Yes...its actually part of a larger composed shot....its a cropped imgae just to share the details of the draginfly eyes...

Wow, that's close. I have yet get any close shot like that. Really impressive. I thought it's taken by a reverse lens or something like that ...

Hmm, gonna try macro again this weekend :think:
