Day Two Hundred and Eight - Dragonfly

Very similar to a picture I posted about two months ago, but the exposure is slightly better on this one. Sadly, the depth of field isn't quite there. I'd prefer full clarity along the length of the wings. Maybe it will be third time lucky!


  1. Yes they are very difficult to get in focus arn't they. most people either go for a shot of the head from the front or 3/4 or from above with the wings in a flat plane. great shot neverthless showing the red abdomen, Win

  2. One day I will set up an off camera flash, set the camera to f/35 and 1/100 sec, and sit waiting for a dragonfly to land in the right place. I will achieve perfect focus throughout!
