My first dragonfly sold!!!

Yesterday I went exclusive, today I sold my first dragonfly image :).

Here is my sold winner:

I'm happy because dragonflies are my favorite macro subjects, and if anyone of you here love to shoot dragonflies, than you must now how hard is to get close to this little fellows, specialy with only 70mm macro lens, where I need to be pretty close to get 1:1 magnification.

I have been asking my self will I ever sold any of my dragonflies or damselflies images and when. Here is my anwser. Unfortunately it was subscription sale, but anything is better then nothing :)

Many thanks to buyer of this image.

Here are a few more dragonflies/damselflies in my portfolio.

well done! Once I tried to shoot some bees, and I know how difficult it is to get a sharp and well lit image...

Then you know what I'm talking about :), I also have few shots with bees. Macro photography really is a game of patience :)

Not an easy task, believe me...but it is possible with a lot of patience...it's much easier with 180 or 200mm macro lenses, where you have amazing working distance from subject. Perfect lenses for shooting dragonflies. Hope I will have one some day :)

Thanks people...
@Clearvista - yes, they are really tough subjects for shooting...best thing you can do is to observe them and learn where they fly and land often, because dragonflies have tendency of landing often to a same place, so best thing is to choose one of those spots, lay down and wait for a while for them to adapt on you, and they will eventualy come to you. That is what I have learn after "dancing by the lakes" just as you :). With dragonflies you need a lot of patience, but they are worth of trouble.

Thank you Dave, yeah, reverse lens macro is ok for extreme macro shots, but not for Dragonflies, because of to shalow DOF(which is ok for me, but not here on DT), but most important is that with reversed lens you need to work very close to subject, and that is out of the question with dragonflies, with damselfies yes, because they will let you pretty close to them, but dragonflies, no way!! That is why I need at least 150mm macro lens, just for greater working distance.

Great captures ! I have tried using a prime 50mm lens with a reversing ring to photograph insects....this gives a D of F ofaround 2-3 mm !
My best image was a hover fly... th eyes were "pin" but the tail out of focus, so therefore rejected by DT. Time to invest in a macro lens ? ;o)
Thank you for sharing your images.
Dave.

Thanks Arim44...until summer I plan to buy myself a 150mm macro lens, for larger working distance and even more magnification...I plant to present here on Dreamstime very high details of this cute little fellows.
