  • Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

    Last days of the Emperor. Taken yesterday resting in the foliage having spent an hour patrolling up and down the garden, sometimes inches from my face. Focus stacked image.

            Pete these hoverflies are wonderful. The light and sharpness are perfect.

              I really see the benefits of the focus stacking. How did you do it with this? I am intrigued.

                Have been absolutely uplifted by some of these images, it really feels good to be amongst similar folks. I'm glad I am not the only one spending hour after hour photographing insect life.

                This was my computer desktop image for several months. It just appealed to me. I got the exposure wrong so needed to rescue it from being almost a silhouette, when I did I was amazed at how much the 60mm macro had pulled in...



                I don't know what this is. I call it a lace-wing but please say if you know.



                And, this is just a sad lunch.

                    Now you're teasing me.
                    It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

                      Thanks Peter. They're easier to shoot if you can get beneath them, and the above tree canopy can make interesting bokeh.

                          This thread is awesome. One day I might just take a shot that's worthy but until then I'll just enjoy looking.

                            These two are absolutely making me very envious. I would love to be shown these two - one day. Well worth a trip for me as they are not in Northants.

                            Both look fairly fresh and the photos are really nice technically too.

                            Keep them coming

                            Thanks Peter,

                            The best place to see a Norfolk Hawker is usually Strumpshaw Fen in mid June however, we didn't see one there when we visited this year due to the cold weather, the pic above was taken at RSPB Minsmere.

                            The Willow Emeralds are slowly spreading across Suffolk and I've been told that they have been spotted in Essex. I know the best site to find them, if you fancy a visit to Suffolk next August let me know and I'll take you to the site.

                              Another unusual species taken in 2008 with an E-510.

                              Thanks for looking.

                                More E510 images, which I'd forgotten that I'd taken.

                                Keeled Skimmer:







                                As always, thanks for looking.
