Depth of field - take your pick

If you've ever tried photographing dragon flies you'll know that sitting still is not in their character. Now bring a 120-500mm lens on a tripod into the picture and try and sort out the depth of field for a particular shot.........

My result was slightly different with the two shots I succeeded in getting off...............so red or blue, take your pick.

Red.........


.......or blue?

Both are excellent! I'm always so thrilled when I manage to photograph a dragonfly. How did you manage to find these two different dragonflies in one place? Have a great day! Jo

It was being at the right place at the right time Jo. They just happened to alight on their perches at the same time.

If I had to choose only one it would be the one with the blue in focus. Only because of the way it sits

I think it is amazing that you got them in focus at all!! I prefer the blue one...

Well, the red one looks like a cousin of the one I got at the Desert Sonora Museum last month.
