The colors of this fellow matched the background so well that I had a hard time keeping up with him. Fortunately for me, it kept returning to the same spot.

Dragon Fly (5) - re-visited:

Rina -

Thanks - very much! As windy as it was I was pleasantly surprised to see that the digi-file wasn't just a black and green blur, especially considering I had to shoot at 1/250 second @ ISO 200 (+ 0.7EV).

I believe that the next time I go out shooting in broad daylight (odd as it may sound) that I'll dial in ISO 400 so I can make use of even higher shutter speeds. Oh - how I wish I had a long lens with f: 2.8, or faster maximum aperture.

Tony -

Thank you very much; just goes to show folks that Zuiko's inexpensive 'kit' lenses are optically superior to the competition. They aren't the fastest lenses on the shelf but they are might fine.
