I was hoping to "catch" some dragonflies. The weather began with a fully overcast sky and reasonably cool temperature, so we suspected there might not be much dragon activity. The bees were out, so I went after them, as well as the flowers themselves.
I used lens tilt to get everything in focus for this one:
After awhile, a few dragonflies did appear, and with some patience I managed to photograph them in a variety of poses and with various perches and backgrounds.
As I had a 600 mm setup for the skittish dragonflies, I used it to get extreme perspective for a flower portrait.
The bee is in flight, and seemingly so is the flower.
Wherever there are insects, there are usually spiders. This one was pointed out to me by a fellow photographer. I had to hang out over a pond to get this shot (with a 100mm macro lens).
Finally, no story of photographing around still water would be complete without an example of reflection.
