Can't believe my luck! Me and my kit lens managed to capture a dragonfly..

People do this all the time but I never thought I could ever achieve it. Reason for success was that he sat there for probably a full three minutes posing like that. He flew away and then came back to the exact same spot..

I know it's not the best bug shot ever and will probably do poorly in a free study but it's my own bug!!! woohoo!!

Reminds me a little of the third highest scored photo on DPC.Except this one is better in my opinion.
