|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Trying out methods for photography of insects in flight:|
I caught this Four-spotted Chaser in full flight when it was approaching its usual perch. The wings are flexible except for the front edge. But even the edge of the forewing bends strongly at the base because the wing is initiating an upstroke.
Technique: short exposure, tele lens, manual focus, flash TTL. I used the extended screen, not the viewfinder to be comfortable during the long wait.
