I don't think I was at min distance for this shot. Getting that close to an insect before it decides to disappear is kinda tricky. All this not helped by the wind, which messes up the focus by moving stuff around.

This dragonfly is navy blue...never had seen one like it. Nevertheless, here's my hat in the pool.

Nice Blue Fly.
BTW I think I spotted some “sensor dust” in your capture.
About 5 spots on the right hand side.
Time to get the Blower out.

I really liked this guy. He waited patiently for me to take his picture (these things are really little twirps to capture when they don't want you to), and he sparkled!

Yes, it is a bit. The wind was blowing him, but I liked the light. Thanks.

I like the light reflected off your dragonfly's wings...looks like fairy dust.
