DIF - Dragon In Flight

So, basically, I spent about an entire weekend trying to get a shot like this. During late summer, there are plenty of darters around the pond, and mature males are now starting to focus on mating, which means they are getting quite territorial and make short, patrolling flights.

Unfortunately, while especially Cordulia aenea and larger dragonflies such as Anax imperator conduct relatively predictable patterns in their patrols, I found these darters to be very random in the way they fly.

For this shot, I used Nikon's 300 f/4 with a 1,4TC. At 420mm, you get that extra bit of reach, which is welcome for these darters since they are the smallest dragonflies over here. I focussed manually to about the point of the darter, and focussed then further using AF-ON. The image is cropped from 16 to 12 MP.

An easy and cheap way to get good quality shots beyond 1:1 with a long macrolens: Raynox DCR-250. Example is on a Sigma 180mm and not even on maximal magnification!

Obsession? I'd say passion. And there's always something to learn from passionated people like this. Love it.
