Excellent all round
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks for the comments. I do wish I had the DA 1.4x TC. It would have made shooting these much easier.

Going to try and get out again at the weekend to find some more dragonflies. Hopefully some different species. If anyone is in or near Worcestershire Croome is absolutely full of dragonflies at the moment too.
Regards,
Dan

I'm not far from Croome - if I can grab some time this weekend I may well take a trip - Thanks

Also - if you're after a DA 1.4x TC I can help you out. Send me a PM if you're interested
