Caught at last

I know it isn't by any means great, but the fact that it was in the frame was cause for celebration, let alone that there are some redeeming factors.

I'm just posting to record the fact that finally, after watching flying nature whizz past me without so much as time to raise a lens, I have a dragon fly in flight. Its a start, and after all those perfectly still abstracts I have been taking, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever be able to track a moving object again!
I like this. Super capture. Love your tag :)

A unique capture Helen! Having watched dragonflies this week, flitting along in front of me in any direction but straight, I am in awe of your photo. Congratulations.

I've very impressed. I can't even catch a moving bird never mind an insect

This is fab, I love how you can just see the wing movement as it buzzes past you, beautiful light on the wings, well done on catching it, he thought he'd escaped you!

Dragonflies are incredibly difficult to capture so I think this is a great shot just because you got it!

I love the subtle motion of the wings. They are the most difficult thing to catch in flight. Congratulations.

Good on you for attempting this shot. I always marvel at people's wonderful shots of nature,wondering at their patience and skill which I seem to lack lol

Neat capture

This is very beautiful. You could try to remove the stem in the background. Not a difficult job in Photoshop and it would make the picture even better.
