Thanks for all your wonderfull comments. I wish I had time to respond to you all individually. The comments and score were some of the few bright spots in a couple of horrible weeks.

I am so impressed you got one of these guys in the air. That in itself is a major achievment

I sure am glad you went with this rather than the bee. I knew people would appreciate the difficulty of getting a clear dragonfly shot.

Most impressive shot, for it's difficulty and for your good luck to get it lined up this way and in focus. Lighting is just right, however I feel that a darker background would have helped with the challenge results.

How did you do that? I don't think I have ever seen one.

This is amazing. I have spent hours trying to capture a flying dragonfly with no luck. Your skill is awesome.

I hope you get the credit you deserve for this entry. I tried for three hours to get a similar shot at a local lake and didn't get one keeper out of 150 shots. NV, as I have an entry in this challenge also, if I were voting I'd of given you a nine.

Anyone who has ever tried to get a flying dragonfly in focus will realize how difficult this was! WOW! (Yes, I've tried!)

Great shot with really sharp focus on the eyes, having played this particular game I know just how challenging it can be to nail a shot like this.... Oh, and you've got just the right amount of motion blur too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow! In flight and so sharp! How do you do it? I have tried many times and only got blur! Excellent!!

Wow, capturing them flying is a different ballgame altogether!

I hope your flying dragon does better than mine several years ago.
