September in Foxglove Covert


Photo Information
I finally made it to Foxglove Covert today (on the way home from Scotland). A little late in the year but there were still dragonflies around.
Taken with a 2x macro focusing tele-converter & a DA-50-200 lens (set to 200mm)
Whilst the quality might not be as good as a DA100 macro, the extra reach helps a lot! (the K100 only has 6MP limiting cropping).

I think this is very sharp considering the fact that you have used the zoom with a 2x converter. It's a shame about the surface the dragonfly is resting on as it detracts from the insect itself.

Unfortunately I got distracting backgrounds in just about all my dragonfly shots
I have to admit to applying a fairly strong unsharp mask in ACDSee, but I can't complain at all about how the hardware performed!
