Morning,

I finally managed a half-decent in flight dragonfly shot. I think this is a Common Hawker but I'm not 100% sure.

Not quite nailed the focus but given the speed the little blighters move I'm reasonably happy.

Cheers

Andy

Great shot, as you say they move so fast. I took some last year, did you focus manually, as that was the only way I could do it, auto focus just wasnt quick enough. Jenny

Hi Jenny. Fortunately the dragonfly stayed in the same place for long enough for the autofocus to grap it, I managed about 12 shots before it flew off.

Cracking shot, I have spent hours trying to get this type of shot and come no way near...I have much to learn!
