"First bug picture"


US
          

So this is my first "official" bug picture, as in I meant to take a picture of this guy. Luckily for me he landed on the piece of rope and that's what my D90 focused to so I'm confident that the dragonfly's body should be in focus, though honestly I cannot tell.

Dragon flies are interesting and sometimes difficult to shoot. Welcome to the forum.

Excellent first shot. Dragonflies will land on the some spot many times. If you see them landing focus on that spot and the dragonfly will more than not come back and land there.
