Thought I'd show off to GaryD just how close you can get to a Four Spot Chaser on a good day No crop or trickery used, this is a one shot image straight out the camera......
Many thanks to Gingerdelight & Silverzones UA's on yesterdays image as always means a lot to me....
Close.....very close Ade !!
I confirm this is blooming close
I want a lens like that.... No for get it I'm better with a 200mm
Close! regards Leon.
Ah, but you weren't using a point and shoot, Ade Carol
Brilliant close -up ,captued.........
Am I impressed?
You bet I am, Ade........for a single shot, wonderful.
Great shot Ade, never managed to get this close to any Dragonfly.
I love that wing and thorax detail.
Ade you are amazing, super macro
Was this the one that you almost got a soaking, its not bad, your getting better I suppose .
In your face this one Ade !!
Excellent close up.
.... 15 all, over to you Gary or was the 'almost soaking' a foot fault
Excellent capture, Ade.
Great mustache details, too!
I am surprised the 90mm Tamron macro lens get in this close............

I can assure you it does.......Wind the lens right out to it's full magnification then slowly move the camera in until everything is in focus! True 1:1 macro.....But note how the DOF drops off.....
All macro lenses in the range of 90-105mm be it made by Canon, Tamron & Sigma work the same way, although some lenses might not physically extend as the Tamron does.....In which case the focus ring has to be turned to it's fullest extent. It's only at this point you truly get 1:1 macro!

I have just seen the reply to Metro and was about to ask if you use ext tubes, from your reply obviously not. Such amazing pristine work
I stand back in amazement - as I usually do!!
An amazing piece of work, I have been using the Tamron 90mm AF 1:2.8 Macro 1:1 SP Di since its launch date, and I have never been able to capture anything as large and detailed as this. I would be extremely kind if anyone could shed further light on this matter. "Or am I simply dumb?"
Sent you a PM Nathan......
And also put an explanation on the technique in the forums HERE
Awesome detail in this close up, the Big O is cooking on gas tonight. It was well worth sinking into the boggy ground and getting your feet and ankles wet to capture this one
Wish I had never said anything now after reading all them posts on the forum..... lol..........
Have to admit Ed, I didn't take this one the other day, this one was taken back in May
Amazing detail here Ade!
Wowww Ade, brilliant detail, ugly bugger though.
Amazing - a brilliant lesson in macro photography - some good info on the lenses too
Now that's CLOSE. Cooor...
...well done, Ade
Another great example from the Master... Clap clap clap!
Wickedly brilliant Ade.
