Dragonfly


DRAGONFLY, GREEN, MICHIGAN, JUNE 7, 2010

Pentax K20D
SMC Pentax-DA 55-300 at 300mm
1/1000 sec. f9.5
ISO 400

I was sitting out on the beach with the camera and long lens, hoping the bald eagle that lives in a tree just down the way from us would soar by, when this dragonfly alighted on the sand a few feet away. The 55-300 isn't supposed to be a macro lens, but it did a pretty fair job (with some cropping) getting a closeup shot of the insect.
