Helmi2010, dude you should work for NASA! The way you have captured those dragonflies is nothing short of stunning! You are showing how their wings work. One challenge - arms/legs scoop prey shot. One in a million. If you nail that, it will be nature shot of the year! Love your work!

Those dragonflies in flight are fantastic! How do you time / do them? I can never get enough light/depth of field or timing!

Hi,
Some pictures from the last years:

Helmi,

I've followed your photos for a few years.  My favorite is "_MG_8237_Anax imperator," an astounding shot of a perched specimen taken with the 7D and 180mm macro.  I have sent links to your Flickr pages to several nature photographers I know many times.  Your work is superb.

One of the reasons I have sent links is to show people what can be done with the Canon 7D, which many people view as horribly dated and incapable of good images.  It is still a supremely capable camera, and your work proves it.

Thanks again for sharing your photos.
