Dragonfly Closeup

I am still playing with the new Nikon D5000, trying to get comfortable with it and learn all of its capabilities. Here is a backyard shot of a cooperative dragonfly. It is one of my favorites so far but not anything the stock photo companies would be interested in. Why is it that my best pictures are not marketable? Something is warped with what people are buying from web-based companies. Personally I want to stick to making photos like this one.

That's lovely! Definitely do what you love. Perhaps start a Flickr account and put watermarks on your photos. Let people know they can contact you if they'd like a print or to use it. Just an idea.
