The 40D was my favorite for a long time, Allen. An excellent image of the dragonfly with a very good composition

Had to look hard for the spider!
Another amazing D’fly image - your plane of focus and DOF are always perfect.
Just excellent!

Allen: Awesome detail and color on the DF and a fine comp. Most excellent.>=))>

Allen: what all the other folks said plus excellent. Richard

The details look just fine, Allen. A neat pairing with great dof. The pairing has me wondering if the DF might try to eat the spider, but I’ve never seen that happen, so probably not…

Allen: capturing two insects in focus is a rare feat. Posed on the diagonal and against a smooth oof background makes this photo exceptional. Had to write again. Congrats! Richard
