tracking dragonflies ... apart from the fact that you've got the wrong side, they are tack sharp.
Really like the complete set.

This was my first time ever trying to shoot these things, so I need lots of pointers. The auto focus is really good on the K5 though.

Thanks. I really do need to get that 18-135mm lens though. I went to Disney World yesterday, and ended up taking about eight photos because I couldn't get back far enough from things, and I was just lazy to change lenses.

There's a reason why you rarely see pictures of flying dragonflies, its not easy. These are quite impressive to someone like me who has never even attempted such a thing. The whole set is very nice - well done!

Thanks. It really wasn't to bad with C autofocus. That seems to work very well.
