It is very rare for me to use a telephoto lens, but I had to for this shot. It's a challenge to try to get a flying object in the lens' field of view, and also a challenge to then focus. I tried setting the focus to where I thought the dragonfly would be, but it did not fly predictably. So this isn't a great shot, but I felt fortunate to get it none-the-less. Those of you who do flight shots of insects and birds - my hat is off to you!
