Weja,
Love how the 100-400 can be used as a macro lens as well.
Great shot!

Hi Everyone.
Looking at all the excellent Damsele/Dragonfly pics posted I thought I'd get out and see what I could do.
I'm fairly happy with my results but I will probably go out again this weekend to try again. I could only find the red dragonflies yesterday but there are normally blue and green damseles out there.
Gotta look up the name of this one. Any ideas?

Yup, it's a landscape lens also! :lol: Sadly , these are the few instances I wish I had a better ISO camera though!

I would have loved a faster shutter speed for the shot, so there is motion blur on the bird and waves. If I zoom at all as it is the grain is not appealing. Basicly me saying whaaa whaaa whaaa! :lol::lol::lol:

OK - not really the camera's fault, though.

the setting used was me trying to stay in my cameras boundries of being usable. All I ment was I wish I had a camera with better ISO flexiabilty . I love this camera, But when it hits that ceratin breaking point with ISO it goes really wrong. Like I said , it was me whining a bit that is all! No, not cameras fault just the cameras limitation .


Cheers,
Joe

Very nice, sharp images.

Thanks for the 'likes' everyone - appreciated.
I would like to post a few more from that shooting session.
Using the 1.4X MkIII Extender.

I might try and capture similar shots for comparison using the 100mm IS Macro.
It almost seems - with 'tongue in cheek' I add - that the 70-200 2.8L ISII and the 100mm macro has been relegated to back of the drawer.
