Large Red Damselfly by EscyKane
Large Red Damselfly
Pyrrhosoma nymphula, Suborder Zygoptera

Photo taken in June, middle Germany

Learning by doing. 
My macros finally start to look nice. While f2.8 is a nice aperture for horse photography at 100-200mm and a distance around 40m to get a sharp object and a pretty background blur, it's WAY too short for a small distance of 15cm. With f2.8 on 15cm distance, the sharp area is maybe one mm! Not enough to capture an insect of about 4 cm length...

After hundreds of macros with very small depth of focus I used a smaller aperture of f6 to f10. Surprise! The whole damselfly in a nice, sharp appearance and background still beautifully blurred! Sweating a little... 
Nevertheless, there's still so much to improve!

Canon EOS 7D and 100mm 2.8 Macro Lens, handheld shot with natural light.
