Assuming this is the F version of the 200-500, these are pleasing Andrew.
I've also seen good results for bird photography at the long end with this lens

And I'm guessing that heavy duty Manfrotto came in useful if there was an FTZ in addition to the extension tube & longish lens out in front of your Z6?!

Andrew:

Dragon flies are such wonderful subjects, although a bit of a challenge unless it is a cool morning and they haven't warmed up yet!

I like the second image the best, interesting perch, like the pose better as well.

Cheers

Wonderful capture only achieved with patience and perseverance.

I also like the second one with the beautiful iridescent colors on the wings and the overall pleasant atmosphere.

Come on. You should have had a selfie stick and drone to capture everything. ;-)

And

If you are trying to use modify and the cursor isn't cooperating to allow you to select the letter and delete it or backspace try dropping your browser window to the task bar and bring it up again. I sometimes have problems selecting or deleting text using my old MacBook Pro. It seems that the screen isn't updating properly.

 First the long lens, showing how much more depth of field it has for close ups, and now dragonfly art shots. Nicely done.  Will be watching to see the set up.
