My first dragonfly. :slow:

I still have back pains after sitting still for half hour photographing this little guy. But I think I was amusing to him, he kept tilting his head like a curious dog. :giggle:

Nikon D300 + Micro Nikkor 105 mm // cropped in square


The other one got a DD!! :iconexcitedplz:

They were quite friendly. I was in the garden for a while and after they realised I won't hurt them, they let me get really close.

You must have rock steady hands; I can't EVER get focus that sharp no matter what I do, even using a VR lens.
