Hi Lars

Wonderful in-flight shot of this beautiful species - Aeshna subarctica. It's one that we don't see too much of, so thanks for sharing it with us.
I really like the perfectly parallel POV here between you and the dragonfly which enabled you to use a shallow DOF - such as f/6.3 - and still catch it in full focus.
The result is a pin-sharp image with wonderful colors and a terrific uniform BG.

Bravo and TFS

Excelente captura Lars, a pesar de la dificultad conseguiste "congelarla" casi de manera perfecta. Buena luz y colores del conjunto. Un bello trabajo.
