[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On flying Insects -15 :
The only way I found to catch this Blue Hawker (Aeshna cyanea, Blaugr√ľne Mosaikjungfer. Aeshnidae) in flight was with manual focussing of the hovering animal. I used a flash, this deprived me of rapid serial shots.
technical: 1/4'000 sec, f/4, ISO 1'600, 450 mm eq., hand held.

The NOTE brings the light to understand the camera and the subject, excellence of work.

Marvellous aerial capture, Dietrich! You have frozen the subject in mid-air.
