I want to move beyond 1:1 and found this site. Lots of reading to do. Glad to be a part of this group.

Welcome aboard. That's a striking image to join with!

What species is this, and how did you shoot it?

Welcome.

Awesome dragonfly. Such symmetry. It almost looks like a mirror image. You've captured a ton of detail. Any pointers?

It's the largest we have and it never sits. Found this guy at 7:00 am resting on a weed. I currently have a Nikon D800 and a Nikkor 200mm f/4 micro lens.

Luck you. Very Happy That second image is a great angle. I take it that both of these are single exposures. The Canon 180mm is a brute. Can't image what kind of a beast the Nikon 200m f/4 is.
