I must have looked silly chaseing this dragonfly with my camera. It took me at least 20 minutes before I was able to finally get this photo. I hope that you like it!

Very well done and good persistence. The shot came out great and was well worth the effor.

Good sharpness, DOF and the colours are really nice. Interesting little fellow, does anyone have a name?

Hi Steven, don't worry - we all sooner or later look very silly chasing something small and fast ;-) Good pose of your dragonfly - I like it on green BG, with shinny eyes and spreaded wings.

Hi Steven,
I missed this nice one. I love it, what a lovely butterfly. It seems as it is wearing sunglasses, and it's sitting in a very nice and decorative position. Very good job, thanks.
Have a good start into the new week, bye
