??? Dragonflies tuck their legs in when flying? So cute.

Oh, I actually got that one in Florida ! after watching it for about 20 minutes I discovered it a ha a predictable flight pattern. So I got comfortable and waited, it took about an hour for all those shots. I eventually used high speed flash to freeze the wings as I didn't have a tripod with me .

I have tried that several times with a bit of success, I use a shoulder brace and with these I have tried the monopod,,,seemed to work not bad, no flash though,,I will try again this year,,lol

I have a picture of one too, but mine had the grace to sit still for a few minutes while I fumbled around. I can appreciate the time that went into this shot, it is beautiful!
