Thanks

as I said you need to have a lot of time and be alone to dedicate fully to the photos, like Tchuanye does (when his wife is after the children).

DF mostly fly away, but if you approach them very slowly (after the first shots at 12x), while setting on Macro or A or M mode and about 2,5x zoom, without projecting your shadow on them, without making too repentine movements and with a lot of luck.

As Sven suggests, better to hunt for them in the morning, when they're weaker and still half-aslept, so their reactions are slower... and maybe you can find DF and butterflies with some dew on the wings, very nice, photographically

Well Francesco,
I like this morning dew method, but on the other hand ;-) I am using a different method at high noon (with damselflies):

I can't understand this new method.
