Photographing dragonflies is a test a patience as they have such unusual flight patterns and are a focussing nightmare. They do look fairytale up close though. Taken with the Nikon 300mm, 2.8.

Nice work, James! How many clicks of the shutter were required to get this one shot, I wonder!

Their colours are electric! Film can't really capture this quality. I know what you mean by their flight. Great shot.

Really good shot, love the bokeh in the background as much as the creature itself!
