What gorgeous skimmer. Great job in getting perfect focus through the grass. Great orange colors on her and those patch wings are awesome. What a wonderful species.

Once again a lovely image of a very interesting insect.
Excellent colors, great sharp details and perfect focus.
I tried many times to take a good shot to this lovely insect near a little river but without success.
This insects are very shy and fly away quickly.

Good shot Ron...a classical composition and fine simplicity! If I may ask, how do you compare the 70-200mm f/2.8L lens at f/2.8 -200 to the fixed Canon 200mm f/2.8L lens?
Cette libellule prend la teinte de son environnement mais s'en détache par un très bon éclairage.

Nice spot, I'm just amazed of your patience and luv for these creatures/insects. Your equipment/investment 5D Mk II and 200mm 2.8 makes it all worth while, but then again YOu have a great Eye. Tks for the comments on my photos. Have a great weekend. (I'm in NYC for a month)
