Shooting Macro With A Telephoto Lens

I was at Botanic Gardens looking for birds but I didn't find any. Instead, I found two drangonflies that were interesting to me.
With no macro lens in my backpack I decided to experiment using my 300mm telephoto lens to shoot macro subjects. To get sharpness, I switched to manual focus to allow me to take over control over the lens.
The results were quite interesting.
The blue eyes of this damsel are very striking.I was sprawled on the ground to get to eye level with the damselfly. It also enable me to steady the camera to get a sharp focus.
