Notes

I used a Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II on my Micro Nikkor to fill the frame. I used a Nissin ring flash, the wind was blowing, and I was hand holding the camera. The flash was needed to capture a quick enough exposure to get a sharp image.

Description

I spent an hour or two crawling on my belly to take advantage of a new hatch of damselflies that had claimed my yard as their hunting and breeding ground. They are only about an 1.25 inches long. Once they have emerged as adults their life expectancy is only 4-10 days.
