Hi Robi!

What a nice inflight of the dragonfly, I just tried to make some today but it's almost inpossible @70mm, I gotta be to close to the subject.. I need a real macro lens I guess..
Sharpness and details are awesome.. TFS!

Best regards,
Andor

Wow! That's almost perfect. Extra-sharp across all the lenghth of your subject, and that's difficult ot achieve indeed with those in-flight shots. Just perhaps slightly overexposed in spots.
Good work.
