Squirl, Believe me it was quite a trick! I got frustrated waiting for one to land so made up my mind to catch one in the air. Found that if I timed it right I could catch them as they hesitated in flight for a second or two. Also had to take LOTS of pictures to get good ones! Some better ones at http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=23 :-) Jim

Nice series Jim. Have you gone back to the FZ30 and why? I thought the FZ50 were alright but did see some loss of detail.

The wetlands are one of my favorite places to shot pictures. I live near a nationally protected wetlands and visit whenever I can. You have done a very good job with your series. Inspires me to keeping working on my skills. Well Done! Donna

You've done it again Jim!!! I think you purposely trying to drive everybody nuts with your "in-flight" pictures of dragonflies. Simply,, amazing. Love the rest of the pictures.

Do you use auto-focusing when shooting dragonflies in flight?
