[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Insects in flight-21 :
You were right in criticizing my last uploaded pictures, there were several problems that are exacerbated with uploading on TN. Here I try again, being more careful. The Blue Hawker (Aeshna cyanea, Blaugrüne Mosaïkjungfer. Aeshnidae).

What changed: less cropping, less sharpening. Otherwise the technical specifications are 1/2'000 sec, f/4, ISO 400, no flash, tele 200 mm eq.

Hi Dietrich.
Very nice picture of this beautiful Blue Hawker!
It is not easy to do this!
Congratulation and thank you for sharing it.

Once again, you have done the impossible, Dietrich.
For a moment, I thought the subject was perched on a plant. This kind of sharpness in an aerial shot is something rare.
