Hi Dietrich. I must admit i have tried this so many times and just got a blur , so i am very impressed with your picture. You have good detail in the body with a feeling of movement in the wings. Rich colours so good use of the light you had. I like it a lot. TFS.

Absolutely Brilliant...and captured on a 100mm lense!!...I personally like the slow shutter giving such wonderful movement to the wings.
All the Best

Technically well done in terms of sharpness. The former is excellent due to to the applied depth of field(aperture).
The background isn't really 'dark'due to gthe flash.
I don't understand what you mean by..."technically I was limited by 100ISO,..."
Thanks for sharing

I am simply amaised by your photo. You have got such a sharp image of a flying dragonfly! And it is not part of the insect to be in focus but the whole body.

ein phantastischer Shoot. Herzlichen Glückwunsch. Ich glaube, sowas gelingt einem sehr selten. Die Schärfe ist brilliant.

Ich bin begeistert, und musste auch ein wenig lachen! Die Mosaikjungfer gleicht im Bereich des Kopfes einer Comicfigur: die Schnauze, die Ohren, die Mickey-Augen! Und dazu das Ganze im Flug aufgenommen, messerscharf. Eine wunderbare Aufnahme!
Ich habe heute Nachmittag frei genommen und bin im Bett des Oberlaufs der Ärgera herumgekraxelt, direkt ab der Quelle. Das war herrlich spannend, schön und wild, aber Bilder hat es nicht viele gegeben. Wenn ich doch nur mehr Zeit hätte...
Es liebs Grüessli

Dietrich, this one is much better than mine! It's much sharper and very detailed.
The composition is really dynamic.
p.s thankyou for the kind words :-)

Excellent inflight action Dietrich,
I tried my hand at this two days ago, nothing anywhere near as good as this one..
They would not hover in place long enough for me to catch a break :(
