4 Spotted Chaser

By harrattp  
Hi Everyone, thanks for the support on my last upload the Yellowhammer.

I have spent many a hot day in the undergrowth with my frineds Mossyoak and Maiwand recently photographing bugs and Dragonflies.

Therefore I have selected this 4 Spotted Chaser to upload as I have not been on for a while. This is from 17 June 2010.

Please feel free to leave any constructive criticism; thanks.


P.S. As I have no access to names of those who vote who do not leave a comment please forgive me if I do not take a look at your PF.

Thank you one and all, especially Brisco for the info. Unfortunately being self employed in the Granite/Marble industry we need the E2 membership money for the new lens fund. lol.

Superb capture Paul - wonderful clarity, pin-sharp detail and lovely colours. The body has a remarkable transparency to it. TOP SHOT

A wonderful close-up shot, Paul, with your micro lens working a treat for you here, aided by the lighting which has helped so well to delineate the detail on the insect. I have been toying with a macro lens for my SLR and work like this of yours and others is persuading me to pursue this further, only I need one to work with a full frame sensor.
A superb capture of this beautiful chaser, Paul. Well done! Smile
