A male Common hawker (Aeshna juncea Linnaeus). I use manual focus for my in-flight shots of dragonflies because the AF will hunt if it looses lock. It's often a case of luck to get them sharp Smile

Well executed shot Vic. Reminds me of the x-wing fighters from star wars!

Hi Vic..Super capture with the wings ina true X...Have you tried a reasonably long zoom lense with ai servo set to centre point only?
Juggle the zoom ring with the ai and it can sometimes be easier than manual focus only...sometimes!!
All the Best
