Damsel Fly Photograph
Look at this gorgeous Damsel Fly with its golden colours!
This photo was taken by a friend of mine (James Billings) who very much enjoys his photography hobby.
He says the mistake many people make when taking photos of insects is they rush towards the insect thinking that if they don't get to it quickly enough then it will be gone.
But insects are very wary of fast things approaching, and will take flight instantly.
The key is to have your camera setup ready for a shot (as much as you can) and to move very slowly into position for the shot. The camera he uses is a Sony Alpha A100.
Patience is the key.
