I took my first hike with my new Canon 20D on May 14, just 2 days after I got the camera. We hiked up in Madera Canyon to a small waterfall that I've always enjoyed and found this Damselfly enjoying this shadey spot. This exposure was 1/400 seconds at f/11 with my 20D set to ISO 800 using a 70-300mm Sigma zoom lens in macro mode at focal length 300mm. The eyes appear out of focus, but are not - their spherical shape makes the reflections of the sky look out of focus.
