My business needs an excellent camera to show every close up detail so that led me to try photography in other areas since I had professional equipment.
I am always trying to improve but there is so much to learn and so little time.

    No VR on that lens, I should have had the 70-200 with me and of course the tripod. I am back in Sedona so cant do a do-over but will try some of the settings suggested if I get a chance later.
    I like the modification you did. Actually, Im not so concerned about the quality because I am trying to get quick shots of how this shutdown has affected our lives but want to know what I could have done better under the circumstances. My business is shut down and I am very depressed and want others to see what this is causing to real people.
    I love you modification! Thank you all.

    Thank you all, you have helped me soooo much. If you look back at my old settings, they were all over the place. Thank you for the positive comments, makes me want to continue to learn even more.

    The speed was due to a windy day, all the greenery was swaying. At that speed the photos were too dark so increased ISO. I was hoping also that the hundreds of dragon flies would show up but when I magnified them, they were still blurry. There were also ducks in and out of the photos, but also blurry or too dark. It was early in the morning, cloudy day and I was sitting on the ground using my knees as a tripod. Smile
    The advice was to first try exposure for fast shutter speed and if not bright enough, iso as a last resort, which is what I did. What should I have had as settings? I am still learning and experimenting.
