29.52 - Off and gone. by dragonfly-oli 29.52 - Off and gone. by dragonfly-oli

Taken on July 16, 2012.



On July 16, a Monday, my family and I went for a walk on the ground of our hotel. We actually wanted to take pictures of ourselves, but then I saw a dragonfly sitting on a plant looking like a palm.
It just sat there and enjoyed the sunlight. First I took my zoom and took pictures of it while I was about 5 metres away from it. Then I thought: Hey, it is not moving, let's try to get nearer to it and I changed my lens to my 50mm and it still did not move! And finally I did something I could not believe myself: I put my closeup filter on and was only about 10-15cm away from this beautiful dragonfly! Haha, it was just looking at me the whole time, watching what the girl with the big black camera did. :aww:
There was also a white dragonfly sitting some metres away, and I also took pictures of it, but I could not decide which one to take for my this-weeks. ^^; the other one will also be uploaded soon!

What an amazing capture and so lucky with how hard it is for dragonflys to stay still

Super Bild! Ist ein "close up filter" ein macro filter? Ich bin zur zeit am überlegen ob ich einen kaufe. Hab auch die 50mm Festbrennweite. Wenn das Ergebnis so gut ist!!! Echt stark!

Dankeschön! :aww: Naja, Macro filter kann man es nicht ganz nennen, eher Nahlinse. :aww:
Ich bin auf jeden Fall davon überzeugt, man bekommt richtig gute Nahaufnahmen damit hin!

I love the contrast between the green growth in the background and the red dragonfly in the foreground, it really highlights the candy colors. Also, the warping of the twig on which it's perched is a really neat effect, nice capture.

Awesome shot!

I've been trying to get close to my own dragonflies, but they're crazy nervous and always fly away before I can get a good shot.:shakefist::cry:

I also wondered why this one was so still and just sat there.
I was able to get very close to it (about 20cm). :)
