A picture of the Dragonfly that regularly frequents the same garden.

Love the crisp details.

What were you shooting with?

What a great capture. I have tried to take some pics of the dragonflies we have here, but they always seem to be on the move before I've had a chance to focus. Your focus seems spot on.

Nice shot.The blow out directly above the head causes me concern. The high contrast tends to pull the viewers eye up and away from the subject and causes a fight with the mind to become the point of interest. Unfornately... and this is nothing you could have done unless the beast cooperated and you waited long enough... the wings on the right side seems to be in an alkward position compared to the natural symetry we expect. One last point, a little more depth of field would help keep both sets of wings in focus.

Overall, nice image. Try it again, it will be worth it!

I enjoyed observing the engineering in this implacable predator and great flying machine thanks to your neat capture. Perhaps this garden can serve as a decent ambush for shooting such close ups :-)

Its good to see another F717 user posting such nice pictures. It makes me want to hang on to mine a little longer.

Thanks for your opinions -

I used Fill Flash as the area needed more light, and cropped the image.

Next time, I hope to capture something similar with a different angle.
