Migrant Hawker Flight Shot

Migrant Hawker Flight Shot
Dragonfly flight shots are something I've steered away from to avoid frustration levels becoming intolerable. However, sitting in the Public Hide at Leighton Moss I noticed 3 or 4 migrant hawkers hovering seductively within 3-4m of the hide. So, I gave it a go and this is the result.
