From the backyard this a.m., I love the pose of this dragonfly! Might have benefited from a deeper dof but always choices to make. The Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6 DI VC lens is "good enough" better than I expected and I will get a $100 rebate which makes it inexpensive, too. I am not a pro photog nor can I afford the pro quality gear for the most part. But I do like background blur and dslr image quality and the ability to shoot RAW cuz that gives me more creative freedom as an artist.
