This is the first time I have been able to get this close to a dragonfly with a camera. He(?) was as fascinated with me as I was with him. Flew away about 5 times as I slowly got closer but came back repeatedly to watch me.
Click for larger, more detailed images. Taken with Olympus OMD-EM5, 40-150r f4-f5.6 lens, 150mm F8 for all, aperture priority, manual focus touch up to ensure proper area in focus due to shallow depth of field. All right at the close focus limit or very close to it(about 3′ or .9 meter).
