It's a commendable effort Alex but a shutter speed of 1/640 is a little low,first of all you really do need a good sunny day to get the shutter speed up then sometimes a macro lens is not the best option for these and dragonfly shot's in flight,i would personally use a 70-200m f/2.8 if i had one,but it is possible to use a macro lens but like i said good light is needed so you can use a high ISO to get the shutter speed up and i would would shoot wide open too,

Thanks for that, and all agreed. Unfortunately all thought goes out the window when I'm trying to take a photo. It had been sunny earlier so I'd made the aperture smaller, then forgot to change it. Will definitely try to remember all this the next time.
