Thanks for the feedback guys,

Must admit it took quite a while to get one I was happy with, I used the lens in autofocus mode, but had spent quite abit of time watching to see where the dragonfies seemed to hover, so just kept the camera pointing in that general area then tried to grab one when it arrived !.

Hi Alan
Great shot, not easy when they move around so much.
Quite an achievement if you get an EC award (for 30 votes) with your first post
Cheers
