That's a beauty Richard. Pretty magnificent macro here which is a credit to your mirror-less camera and its Leica long lens here. I guess, like my crop sensor it acts like a 600mm in 35mm terms. I used to see a lot of dragon-flies but nor many this year-maybe too dry? They always fly off, long before I can get this close. ☼ Well done.

Cheers, Herb

Its more like 800mm Herb, hence being able to grab the shot befre it escapes!! The other trick if you have time, is see where they land- they tend to return to the same spot over and over -and wait til they are tired and stop for a bit - all of course, very easy to say!!
