Hi Greg. I had a look on the map and i think i could see you waving but i am not to sure. !!!
A good inflight shot of the Red Dragonfly . Once again we can see the mites on its side. Good detail and colours. Good use of the light in the eye. well done TFS.
W locie i z dobrym rezultatem. Cikawe jaka ekspozycja wytarczylaby na uzyskanie ostrosci skrzydel. Fajne.

Good image of a dragonfly in flight...
Quite normal that the depth of field is a bit shallow.
Very sharp with a 1/125 setting.
Background is fun.

quelle netteté pour une prise à cette vitesse!
la couleur du corps est tres belle, grand detail de la tete, et mes ailes se devinent tes bien aussi et permettent l'effet de vitesse..

Another great addition and a splendid capture, my friend!
The focus here on the head is spot-on and the details came out stunning!
The rather long shutter speed for an in-flight made the wings exquisite and very interesting for such a shot - the almost seem to disappear towards the end...very cool! ;)
Great compo and spot-on exposure, too.
Bravo again and looking forward for more

Hello Grzegorz. Amazing sharp focus at 1/125s with this optics. I happened to have one too but this is totally out of my ability to catch one. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Superb macro photograph of small red Dragonfly. The inflight focus is too good with excellent front profile & POV just like Nat Geo. TFS.

A fantastic shot of this dragonfly in flight. Looks like you caught him as he was diving. Excellent details - the mites are very visible and the face is wonderful. I love the red and browns.

Excellent and well-timed in-flight capture of this beautful Sympetrum. Great focus on the eyes and I love the colours against the grey background. Well done!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Sympetrum striolatum, yes, I think you're right - this is the Common Darter. See, I am learning a lot from you Greg! But I also think it looks more like a helicopter.
Well done - good focus and those wings are moving fast!

Duelling the damselfly! I imagine composing an electronic slideshow hughlighted with the famous music "Duelling the banjo" and putting on stage your and Horia's damselflies! Oh! This would be a phantastic show...
Congratulations, your series is marvellous.

Dang there guy. You are neck and neck...and besides you have given Horia quite a game which I think he enjoys much! I almost feel like critiquing you vs him or vs versa is too hard. I can give him an A+ for his newly found talents or rediscovering old ones...and you...well your in flight images of this...it must have been quite a challenge eh?

10/10 to you in this round for this marvellous in-flight shot, Greg, but how did you do it at 1/125, man??
You amaze me with your versatility.
The image could not be sharper or more colourful even if you had captured the subject in a stationary situation.
Well done and TFS.
Wieko - zabijasz mnie tymi latajacymi wazkami... ;)

Impresionante captura, con lo difícil que es conseguir encuadrar, y mas todavía conseguir un buen foco, enhorabuena por esta excelente entrega, TFS. Saludos
