Skill and patience can be more important than equipment

I was browsing through the top ranked photos for the last month on, and at number 9 was this one which caught my eye:

dragon fly

by one Antonio Diaz.

Now thats a pretty impressive effort, nicely composed, nice background and bokeh, and catching the dragonfly in mid-flight – a pretty good effort and surely he must have used the latest Canon with EF 180mm L macro lens.

I look at the details and to my great surprise, it was taken with an Olympus E500 with a 40-150mm lens (presumably the kit lens)!

Now that makes the photo even more impressive in my view!

Well done Antonio!

Message – use what you have and learn to use it well.
