@ Gastephen,

Yes, I've seen slow-motion footage of dragonflies doing that.

@ Richardska,

Wow, I love those flowers!

Default La huelga de los chóferes se acabó... ¡por fin!

Not a nice macro this time, just an impression of today's first normal commute to work since weeks! Ya estamos hartos.

Excellent shot, Pfarnac! Did you use a special kind of lens?

Nah I wish. I just used a Canon Powershot and I think I put it on a higher contrast setting

I'm a great fan of the Canon PowerShot concept. My compact camera is a Canon PowerShot S70 and it has got a wide angle lens, which makes it ideal for urban photography. My new Nikon D40, an SLR, is mainly for doing macro.

Default Not a photographer, but I like to share

I found this subject very intriguing. A tree growing out of a car? Just one of many little things that made my Uruguay trip this past May so enjoyable.

I used a Nikon D40 for this shot, with an 18-22 m lens. But I'm already looking for an additional one!

@ Jomik,

Looks like someone has been taking care of this car (e.g. polishing it) for a long time though!
