With one limitation. I don’t know how much time you had, of course, but this looks like a case of needing to set the focus focus (sic!) off-center so you could focus on the little beastie's eye and get more of beastie and less of background.

Fair comment?

Of coiurse, I hasten to add that I've never taken a dragon fly pic that would hold a candle to this, and I've tried!

That longer lens (my longest is the 40-150) is on my shopping list. I keep seeing very good results using it and you’ve added another one.

Cheers, geoff

Thanks for the kind comment Geoff, in fact I was trying to focus on the darters eye, but wasn't using a tripod. Have the E-M1 on order, so hopefully the smaller focus boxes should help. Really do love the 100-300mm, use it more though spring and summer than my macro lenses, and always hand held, although I have just invested in a tripod (benro2682B1) which also converts into a monopod, should be quite useful for wildlife shots.
