50m+EX-25 = dragonfly?

I would call this a dragonfly, but what do I know... perhaps someone can confirm.

But the point is I have never been sure about the 50mm + EX-25 for use in the wild, but it worked out quite well this weekend, you just have to remember not to poke the subject with the lens!





Amazing creatures, whatever they are.

All the best,
Phil

It's a damselfly - dragonflies stick their wings out sideways when at rest.

Well done Phil

There are so many of the wonderful creatures about at the moment I just cant stop photographing them.
There also many diferent types of Damsel fly.AT the moment on my local river there are lots of what I think are Banded Damselflies ie have blue bands on the wings.
I think yours is a Blue tailed.

Thanks Jim - I have always wondered what the difference was!

Thanks for the compliment Hugh, I must admit they were willing subjects, both sitting still and tolerating me creeping towards them.

Thanks for the comment Andy! It is certainly a good time of year for the photographer, stunning sunset tonight in my neck of the woods too.

All the best,
Phil

Great shots - I can never get close enough to those things, so I admire your stalking technique as well.
