Dragonfly in flight (2)


Another stunning shot, I am trying to keep up with you but the insect life in Scotland is disappearing very fast due to the cold.
I am surprised how sharp the image is with the relativley slow shutter speed.
I think I will have to wait to next year to try this for myself.

Kindest Regards: Peter

Thanks Peter for the generous comment.
We are lucky at the moment with the weather , temp is still high and insects are not gone yet.
1/300 shutterspeed and pulling along the camera in the flight direction was the trick I guess..;-)
Hope for you that these insects are coming your way next year so you can shoot a few your self..
