Thanks so much, Sam! This feels really good! Actually, I use a compact digital camera (Olympus), and it enables me to take pictures from as close as one centimetre (less than half an inch). The other half of the trick is getting close to the animal (in the present case a dragonfly). You need to move really slowly, and stay put for a while. Then they get used to your presence, and you can freely move extremely close to them, and take several pictures with flash or without flash. I prefer flash, by the way, to get more details. I observed that some butterflies and dragonflies seem to ENJOY my taking pictures of them, they pose and even let me push them gently in the right direction and posture. Some others are less friendly but as they say, it takes all. Smile Good luck to shooting macros, and make sure you post your best shots here, so that everybody, including myself, can marvel at them.
