Very good. Great colors. The fence makes the photo interesting. Check mine out.

Behind The Lens

Location
In my back garden in Lincoln City Centre, UK.
Time
4pm aprox
Lighting
The day was somewhat overcast following a bright and sunny day and this dragonfly was resting on the back fence.
Equipment
Handheld Canon 5d iii using EF 100mm L Macro. Taken at ISO 1000, F16, 1/80sec.
Inspiration
I have a strong interest in photographing insects and wildlife. As this little fella allowed me to get so near, I took a series of photos.
Editing
I used Adobe PSE13 to crop and colour correct.
In my camera bag
Canon 5d iii and 7d ii with 100mm macro, 100-400 L and 50mm.
Feedback
Be patient and approach slowly. Maual focus on the eyes. If using a flash use a diffuser.
