Dragonfly



Finally, I have my camera in hand when a dragonfly is around. Not the best picture, a bit to warm I think. Needs a CPL or ND filter, items I have, but I didn't want to miss the shot. My fat fingers scrolled the wheel changing the exposure to + .7 also. That doesn't help. It's the same wheel I use for changing shutter speed. Old habits I guess. Note to self, check your setting, have more patience, do it right the first time, if you miss this one another opportunity will present itself. Lessons I still need to learn!

Warm schwarm. :-) I think it's a fabulous shot, despite your self-criticism. I know how you feel, though, because I'm my worst critic.

The background makes the focal point shine and compliments it beautifully.

Even with your self-criticism I still think this is a wonderful shot- its not often you get to take the picture fast enough or even have your camera at the ready for a photograph like this...
