    Took alot of patience to get these shots.
    These big Dragonflies only sit still in the morning.
    But during the hot parts of the day I observed them circling single small puddles and defending there territory.
    They would patrol and stop in certain spots.
    I tried two different lightings with the flash ring.
    C&C please

    I like the way the wings look in #1 better. I find the backgrounds a little bland, but great shots regardless. Whatever is in the upper right background of #2 is distracting. And the dragonfly in #1 is a little overexposed in my eyes. Not an easy photo to get though.

    Nice shot for something moving like that, but I agree with Montana. It would be hard to get any shot better than that with them moving.
