    One of my favorite dragonflies, the Aeshna viridis. Very rare here. I have only seen it twice.

    DIF's are very hard to get. I think this is my best try.

    original.

  4. fantastic! the only one I ever got so far I kinda knew I had was because there was a bit more of a concentrated blob of pixels in front of the OOF background blob
     
  5. Quite a shot taken with a 70-200! I've tried to capture DIF. I am just not quick enough even if one passes my lens, my focus is off. Maybe I should try great big birds first.
