Excellent shot!
thanks for sharing.
I can hardly imaging how such pictures can be made.
She is not sailing in the air, you had to be real fast - faster than your shadow :-)

Thanks for taking a look and commenting.

To tell the truth the fly was in hover mode. Just sitting there in the air.

Like most mere mortals I would not even attempt to photo one in turbo mode flying by.

even the hover position of a dg is hard to focus!

Wow! You nailed that one. Very sharp and well exposed. And a pleasant, uncluttered background too. Very nice photo zoomn. Woody

Great shot zoomn!
You are the second person I had seen doing such pictures of dragonfly in flight and my hands are starting to itch to try it myself :lol:
