Well it is always a challenge to photograph insects in flight.Aeshna mixta is one of the few odonata sp. flying in Crete at this period.

Hello Fotis,
A remarkable inflight shot of this colorful dragonfly. I have tried many times and haven't had any luck on these insects. Tac sharp focus and perfectly exposed. A tad bit of noise in the BG, but this can easily be removed in Neat Image. Great work!!
