    Last summer after teasing me in flight for a while some of the dragonflies in my fathers garden settled down for a rest. One remained long enough for me to start getting tired of trying handheld focus stacking shots & let me go and get my other camera & grab some shots in infra red. So here it is through a 560nm filter to leave a little color.

    The false color probably makes it more difficult to identify, it's a Migrant Hawker.
    FWIW the visual shots didn't seem to amount to much, too much movement between frames. :(

    Thank you both, I found it hard to choose between them for our clubs main display (tomorrow) so ended up going with the first one as it fits my precut mounts better!
