  • Dragonfly!!!!!

    Hi Jonah, I know how frustrating Dragonflies can be, as I was out all morning trying to get pictures of Brown and Southern Hawkers with only one rather not very sharp Brown Hawker to show for it.

    For the record this is a Common Darter, one of our smaller dragons. They are a nice species to photograph as you do let you approach quite closely and even when they do get spooked they often return to the same spot after a short while.

  • late summer Common Blue.

    Nice shot John, but you have the ID wrong, Blue-tails dont have all that blue in the middle section. This is a Common Blue, and there are still lots of those about at the moment.

    Quote:Macro ring light does a good job. worth buying ??


    Yes, although I normally prefer natural light, it is invaluable for subjects like this, not so good for things like shiny beetles though.

  • Wild Dorset !

    Basically I would agree with Straw man, although being taken in someones garden probably does not allow you do do much about the food. Lighting is the main issue, and if you are limited to on camera flash then the best option is to use a dedicated flash with a diffuser such as the lightsphere which should get rid of the red eye and give much more even lighting.
