Lovely work. What sort of camera do you use?
Thanks! I'm glad you like them.
A Nikon D70 for these, with a 28-200 mm lens that I actually don't like very much. Usually it's a 50mm.
I also have a medium format film camera, a Pentax 6x7.
Love that dragonfly. Looks like it's wearing camo.
Good point! But I meant military camo. Or perhaps the military is trying to look like dragonflies. And who could blame them!
Yeah, that's the part I wish I'd had my film camera tripod for.
don’t know why, but I’ve always really liked dragonflies
They're such pretty and efficient predators, and very graceful.
