I would have loved to see the dragonfly's feeler thingys (?) in focus. Great shot though.

I agree. It was my first day out with the 75-300mm and I hadn't yet got comfortable with its capabilities. When I got the image back on the PC I was somewhat disappointed with the sharpness. I'm sure I'll get another pop at it Smile

Love the shot, would have liked to have seen a little more length to it though

Glad you liked the shot! The full photo (this is a crop) has more length to it. You can view it in the fauna and flora section of my website (www.snowdune.net).

Just wondered how long you had to wait for this dragonfly to get into position, and how far away from it you were

There were about 3 of these patrolling the same section of reeds and I spent about an hour taking shots of them (both in flight and when they settled). It helped that they had a limited set of vantage points that they preferred to settle on. For this shot I was around a metre or so away from the insect. Shot was hand held with an image stabilised lens.
