Macroish Dragonfly!

    Last weekend, my Mom and I went over to the Botanical Gardens and shot some photos. I went not really knowing what I wanted to shoot but I finally found some cool stuff next to the river. This dragonfly was really hard to get in focus. It is constantly moving with very fast and sharp motions, and it never sits still. Good thing I was using my telephoto lens (oh wait, that's all I have!), I was about three feet away from it and got this close-up, pretty good for a max f-stop of 5.6... These things are nasty little creatures, they look harmless, but if you hit it or something, it'll bite the heck out of you!
