Thanks ISv. I really like your dragonfly pictures. I've never been able to manage a picture of one.

I also was not able in the time when I was trying with my 105mm macro. Now, with lens with minimal focusing distance 2.2 meters it is rather easy (but the resolution is lower...). I have to go and try when the wind is low but it's rare case here - almost always windy and I have to shoot at higher speeds/high (for crop camera) ISO.

Here are some shots from last summer.

All done with the 5D Mark IV, 400mm f/4 DO IS II and 1.4x TC III.  Probably used a Kenko 36mm extension tube with most/all of them.

Thanks, Click!

There was a row of those plants along a pond, and the Monarch just kept flying from flower to flower, up and down the row.  I followed him for about half an hour before I finally said 'okay, that's enough' and walked away, but he was still there flitting about.
