Here are a couple of shots from recent outings I'm just getting around to looking at now.
This guy landed in front of me for a snack while I was chasing a bumble bee around.
I love shooting dragon flies. These are very common here in marshlands and yes they do get big. this guys is about 3" long. they are amazingly aerobatic and it's fun to watch them but hard to photograph in flight. this was one of the last shots from my a700 before a drenching from a thunderstorm broke it.
