FZ30 - macro shots with Canon 250D

Took these pictures with Canon's 250D and feeling is nice.

The images are PP and cropped.

Hope you like them.

Those are some nice dragonfly shots. I have never seen one with so much red in its' wings.

The pictures are great! I always wonder how you all get to have your subjects stay still for all these macro shots of winged insects?? Please enlighten

Thanks.

Actually they didn't stay long but just touch and go quickly.

I think the fz30 helps as it does focus faster and I used
high burst mode to take several frames per second.

Wonderful macros, with great colors and bg blur. I love the wings detail on the third shot! Great job!

Re: What is a 250D?

Thanks Stef. The 250D is a close up filter
made by canon with +4 power. The qaulity
is really good.

Re: FZ30 - macro shots with Canon 250D

Okay I'll ask. How the heck do you get so close? From the looks of the pictures you look to be hovering right over the dragonfly. Seems to me you have to see it land, get over there without disturbing it, move in close to get the pic.
