Is it a bird? Is it a plane? by Kriloner Is it a bird? Is it a plane? by Kriloner
My first dragonfly in flight! This picture was taken during a meeting with Phalalcrocorax, I'd like to thank him for the hints he gave me ^^

With my EOS 60D and a Sigma 120 300 :o

In fact it's not that hard, these dragonflies always follow the same path, you just have to be patient =)

Flying ladybugs are harder than dragonflies I think ^^

Reply

Kriloner Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I had to use manual focus for this one as the auto focus always tried to focus on the plants and not the dragonfly =)

Haha yeah, autofocus has a habit of doing that!
