This was taken in the Singapore Botanic Gardens,
These dragonflies were flighty but managed to get some pictures of them with a extension tubes and flash.

Ok...the truth now, Saw some pictures of a dragonfly with lots of water droplets but in Singapore it is not possible to get it naturally.

So I sprayed some on them and trust me, it took me very long as I sprayed they flew away.....

Finally I got one.

Really cool shot, IMO slightly more DOF needed. Need apertures of at least F14 (no vote)
