[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
All I know is that these are dragonflies and that they have the most beautiful blue colour.I also know that they are difficult to photograph as they tend to dart away at the slightest movement. I discovered that focusing with this sort of photography is most difficult since a blade of grass in front
affects the focus and prevent the camera from locking on the subject.
The solution was offered to me by a friend who proposed that i use the manual option. Silly me not to think of it.
