Thanks Harriet,

Some dragonflies are easy ... if they decide to land somewhere and you disturb them when trying to take a picture, a lot of the time they'll come back to the same place.
You only have to see that you don't block their sun and move slowly (or not).

The blue one on top was the type that doesn't come back, and is rather hard to find sitting down.

Hi Ronny,

Very well done! I really enjoyed the series. I'm impressed with how they turned out.

I am curious: are you doing this hand held or on a tripod (with remote)?.

Regards,
Marc

Thanks Marc,

all are handheld, I guess if I could get a tripod near them they would turn out better, but the only insect "macro's" (close ups) I've made using a tripod have been with 300mm or more.

You are really getting good. Make that you are good at these kind of shots. I'd say you've mastered it.
