I captured image 029 last year with the new Canon 100mm f/2.8 L IS lens. I must say that it is a dream to use, and the sharpness and contrast, as you would expect from a L series Canon lens, is superb. The species photographed is a Blue-tailed Damselfly taken in Hampshire. It is one of the commonest of damselflies within the UK so keep an eye out for them between May and September around ponds, lakes and slow moving water.
Blue-tailed Damselfly, Ischnura elegans, Andover, Hampshire, May, 2011.
