I just can't believe what nice work you've been doing. The two shots of the dragonflies are so sharp and colorful.

Excellent, as usual. Don't know how you do it, Michael. I never even see insects like those, let alone manage to photograph them.

Thanks guys!

Terry, at least in my neck of the woods finding dragonflies and damselflies is pretty easy this time of the year. I can't go to any body of water without seeing any. While damsels can be a bit skittish, dragons don't care much about me getting close and are mostly pretty easy to shoot (except for those species that never seem to settle down anywhere).

I wish it was that easy with birds, but birds here are so shy that I almost never manage to get close enough.

Been up on the wild and windy moors today. Not an insect or bird to be seen!

HDR is my new favorite! Both images are straight out of the camera.

So incredible shots. Do you use manual focus?

Thanks! No, I used auto focus for these.
I do use manual focus when I shoot smaller damselflies and try to focus on the eye. The eyes are pretty small and most of the times AF focuses a little behind the eye (I guess the AF points are too large?). In these cases I focus with AF, then turn the focus ring a tiny bit back. Then I shoot a small burst while slowly turning the focus ring. I'd "properly" manually focus, but damselfly eyes are just so small in the viewfinder that I can't see whether they're perfectly in focus or not...

Those are really beautiful, incredibly sharp images.
