This dragonfly with golden wings has landed on my Japanese maple this afternoon. Of all of the angles that I took pictures from, nothing beat using the blue rain barrel as a background! 7D + 200mm with 12mm extension tube
I went downtown to take pictures today. I received an official press pass. Wow.... Anyway, I can submit 3 pictures for the event. It is a Christian conference, taking place in a non-church venue. Since it is a restored historical site, I thought that I might submit these in black & white instead of color.
