Dragonfly in Flight


Dragonflies are always great photographic subjects and capturing them in the air has proven quite difficult.

When a dragonfly hovers it seems that they stay in one place for some time but it is an entirely different story when trying to locate them through the camera lens. Once I do get on them achieving focus and firing before they zoom off has proven nearly next to impossible.

Although far from perfect this is the best I have been able to obtain so far this year.

Life has been a little hectic lately and I haven’t found much time to pursue outdoor photography or blogging thus the sporadic posting of late. With some time away from work coming up next week I do hope to collect some new images for future Country Capture post.

Wonderful! You did a great job of catching this dragonfly in mid-flight, not an easy thing to do.

Love all your images, but the dragonfly is my favorite. Mainly cause I have spent many a day tracking the darn things with my camera, and have only gotten a few select pics. In flight is not easy to get. Great shot!

Salty: That is a great photo of a neat critter. They are even hard to find when they are sitting still.

HI :) This is an amazing capture :) :) I actually shot a few dragonflies over the weekend at my mom's house in California. I found out how difficult it is to capture a dragon fly even if it is just sitting on a stick. :) :) Your capture is AMAZING :) :) Hope all is well with you and your family.
Aloha
Renee :)

Nice catch. I can attest to how difficult it is to get a crisp photo because I've tried it a few times myself. I think the determining factor is having a clean, unobstructed background so you can find the dragonfly quickly enough in your viewfinder.
