Always loved the composition of this one - the way the reed he's sitting on curls away out of focus and that he looks as if he's watching the light coloured out of focus blob in the top right...

Great shots Cog, beautiful diffuse backgrounds so they stand out well. I especially like the DiF (Dragonfly in flight ;) ) - must be incredibly difficult to catch such an agile flyer "in flight"! Also saw one you posted in "Butterflies, Moths and Assorted Insects (Aug.03) which is awesome!

Keep up these quality posts! Cheers, Wiebe.

Hi Cog, Phil, applecider.
Lovely shots you have each taken, I'm curious as to how long it takes and how many missed shots you all have before you get the shots you show here, I spent about half an hour trying to shoot one down by the river last month, watching it fly what appeared to be quite a predictable circuit from reed to bramble to.......
Try for the shot and the routine changes and they are so quick from here to there to there etc, shots of tails leaving etc but nothing to show for the time with no indication that several hours would improve my chances of learning / predicting a flight path!
I take my hat off to you guys.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Wiebe.
Very nice, the detail of the Damselfly shows up really well on the green of the leaf, in particular the wing veins are really distinct.

Cheers, Graham.
