Panasonic 100 - 400mm Leica DG Vario-Elmar: Telemacro & Stereo at 400mm

10 Ruddy Darter.

I spent quite a long time with this individual, Sympetrum sanguineum, who was clearly patrolling his territory. He was in superb condition.

Shots of perching dragonflies usually have twiggy bits of dead wood or stems of emergent vegetation in the background. These tend to give moderate highlights in the image and various degrees of cropping are required to minimise these. I have done this with the single frames, the originals being present in the stereo pairs.

I was very pleased with the performance of the lens, careful use of the AF having been essential.

The stereos are crosseye.

2) Large Skipper Male Through 400mm

All shots were from about the same position and at 400mm FL. The single frames have been cropped variously, mainly to exclude highlights from pale background twigs, etc.. The first image is at just above the original magnification. The stereos are as cropped by the special software.

I find this species in our garden, always a a lone male. Once more, it was a lone male.
