Imagine . . . Damsels Flying

As a bird photographer I’m best at flowers—they don’t flit and fly away. Yet, ironically, the smaller flyers (butterflies, dragon- and damselflies) when they alight upon a leaf are more likely to (re)pose awhile. And so . . .

Photos taken 31st May 2017, in  a small scrap of fenland in the Tas Valley, Norfolk, UK, using a Canon kit lens (not exactly a super-zoom) and thus greatly cropped!

    To my amateur eyes, they look fine, and I wouldn’t know they’re cropped.

      Resolution remains the same. Difference comes when you try to print. Instead of, say, 17″ x 12″, you get 6″ x 3″. It’s only if you try to stretch it beyond that e.g. 6 x 3 that the resolution begins to falter, things get blurry, eventually resulting in full pixelization.
