We have a lot of dragonflies flitting around our ponds these days, so I thought I’d try to get a few shots of them. It turns out these critters never stop flying, at least anywhere that I can see them. They might hover in one spot very briefly but before you can get the camera pointed at them, much less get it focused, they have usually moved on. So it turns out it was a pretty effective way of burning through a Sunday afternoon. Of maybe 500 shots total, I got only a couple of good, well-focused images. (Thank goodness I wasn’t using film!)
