This hot summer has caused alot of parks, meadows, brush, wood areas to turn brown. So, when taking wildlife photos, the bg is often brown. Glad to see these colorful creatures.:)

Taken with Bigma + 68mm extension tubes. Uncropped, only resized and pp'ed. Hope you like them. :)

C/C welcome.

A good collection Fee, of the different colours on these different species of dragonflies, nicely composed shots, well done.

Like the lace effect on the wings of that last one. I bet in Texas, you get these all year round?

The big mm lenses with tubes seems to be the way to go, for macro. If your a clod foot like me. :D
