Blue Zipper

For Our Daily Challenge: In The Air


I spent part of the afternoon kneeling in a meadow trying to photograph bluetailed dragonflies in flight. Fortunately, though they are very fast, they sometimes hover for a few moments in one place. But I discovered that they are still not easy to capture, at least for me. Out of nearly 100 clicks of the shutter, I got only a handful of shots that I felt were potentially usable. This is the best of those.
