Wildlife Wednesday – Dragonfly in flight

2011 May – Hue, originally uploaded by anthonli.

My friend and I spend a good part of our break shooting these critters on our way back from Phong Nha Caves to Hue. The location is somewhere near the ex-DMZ between North and South Vietnam.
Shooting these bugs in flight is very challenging, many friends, just tried for a short while and gave up. But I persevered with another friend to land this image.
The dragonfly is sharp with a nice background.
2 skills that this practice is good at honing – manual focus and bringing the camera to the eye instead of the eye to the camera. Need this practice more often!
