Very impressed by your Sigma telemacro. Great one of a Scarce Chaser supplemented by excellent settings and use of tripod to give fine sharpness, details and DOF.
A fine close macro indeed and thanks for sharing it.

Excellent macro with amazing sharpness and details. it seems like the remains of its food is still clinging to its mustache. I am adding this to my favourites.

Magnifique qualité due à l'absence d'utilisation de flash. Bravo.
What can I say about this?
All I can do is admire your genuine photographic skills and add this to my favourites.
All the Best and of course the hat is tipped with my head slightly bowed!!

this is what I call a macro-shot.
You manage your Sigma 180 macro with great skill.
This picture is sharp with very good details and the DOF i also
great for this close-up but best of all we do not see any reflections in the cell and that's difficult to avoid when you shooting eyes of a dragonfly.
I'm really impressed, maybe it's time to take a lesson or two o you. :-))
Great work, young friend.
WOW, gulp, eh, gulp, ugh, yes, you know what I mean.
You may post some more of them goodies.

Spettacolare macro, un rapporto d'ingrandimento così elevato e una DOF quasi perfetta fanno pensare ad una ripresa a scansione in laboratorio, una straordinaria capacità di utilizzo della propria attrezzatura fotografica, eccellente la nitidezza, molto belli anche i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio
Well Joe. To be honest this is the best macro i have seen on Tn for a very long time ,and also your best so far but i am sure there is still more to come from you. The detail and colour is first class. I know just how hard it is to get this type of picture so very well done .
hola Joe, EXCELENTE aproximación, con muy buena definición, color y luz evitando brillos molestos. Un saludo

This is already the highest in defining some eyes, you can count each of the cells comprising well as each of their hair. An excellent work of super macro. I like you've accomplished as much to do.
A big hug my friend

Going back to your yesterday's post was irresistible after the very first glance at the thumbnail, Joe.
Since I have seen your latest posting first, I must say that this one is certainly more daring than your latest. Here, every cell of the Dragon's compound eye is crystal clear.
Other details on the face are astoundingly sharp and crisp.
I think you have set up some kind of record on TN in terms of the size of a macro of this category and type.
Needless to say, it is the work of very high professional standard.

This IS really good Joe, i've seen you in action and you do seem to be able to just rack them off and get excellent results!
Very nice mate, your POV is great but the clarity and detail is incredible.
(Keep me posted on the short listing you told me about)
