Blue DragonFly

Macro photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. By some definitions, a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative or image sensor is life size or greater.  Nikon calls it ‘Micro’ because of their earlier use in making microform.  Thought I had dabbled with macros in the past with close up filers, lens reversal rings, extension tubes but had never shot with a macro lens till I acquired a Tokina 100mm AT-X Macro special purpose lens. Why Tokina and not a Tamron or Sigma or even a Nikon will be a topic that will be dealt separately on another day.

Now with the GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) settled, it was time to search for a micro subject and a blue dragonfly decides to visit our home yesterday as if he knew there was a photo session planned..what followed next is a photoshoot of the Mr Blue Dragonfly.
