'GOTCHA!'

By metro074
I have been after taking a better shot of this dragonfly for ages! I think he/she must have been disapointed to find the pool empty!!

Thank you for the comments and support on my last upload and a big thank you to Tony (bromley-smith) for his help and advice
Best wishes Carol Smile

I have tried to photograph these things, and know how hard they are to catch! You have done a great job with this one.

Excellent capture. Very hard to catch, they don't slow down or stay still often. Great detail..........Sandy

My sentiments exactly. Doubt if I'd even see one flying about, never mind photograph it. Excellent work, Carol.
