This uncropped image was shot with the Canon 28mm macro lens. Shooting dragonflies or small butterflies with a short lens is very difficult yet allows for a broad view of the surrounding landscape.

Though this species of spring dragonflies is very common locally I find their contrasty colors are great for imagery. 

For this frame I used my 28mm macro lens to showcase the dragonfly-scape
