OT: Couldn't believe how close he let me get...

I was sitting on the porch and lo and behold there is this dragon fly. I love dragonflys, btw. Anyway, I figure by the time I get inside to get my cam he'll be gone, but when I come back he's still there. I snapped a few, forgive the DOF, the aperture was set way to low, but I didn't have enough light to take the pic without the flash with a higher aperture, the flash pics came out really crappy

Anyway, none of these pics are cropped, simply resized.

Really, really cool... That's the kind of shot I'm always looking for. I'm always running in to get my camera only to find that there's nothing to take a picture of when I get back out. hehe gj.

I don't know who made your camera but you might get some money selling those pics to them for their advertising. 8O
