I was waiting for a dragonfly to fly up really close to the camera in order to take a shot using a fast shutter speed. The Canon G6 didn't have much of a zoom, but I managed at least to get one zooming past...even though it's kind of small.

Nice try there Kenny! These little guys fascinate me too. I know there might be those who C A N nail a pic of these little critters, but so far the only time I can get a decent photo of them, they are sitting still. They'll be back here in a few weeks, and if I get lucky you might see me post one too. I can only imagine the posture you adopted to get these shots. I sometimes nearly trip all over myself going after flying bugs to shoot...Thanks, best regards,

KennethD

Thanks KennethD! You're right ahahha! It probably looked quite ridiculous to some neighbours watching me stand there in the yard under intense sunlight, waiting for ages for dragonflies to come my way. And then hope that the dragonfly would stop changing directions all over the place. Hope you can get some nice shots of them too later.
