A picture of a dragonfly in the air is also 100% authentic, no way of cheating here!

It is always exciting to try to capture living creatures in their natural behavior. And what can be more natural for a bird or a dragonfly than being airborne ?

A picture of a dragonfly in the air is also 100% authentic, no way of cheating here! Because with images of perched insects you can’t always be sure, they might have been made using sedated or cooled specimens.

I started using the Sigma SD10 and a 70-300mm zoom, later on a Sigma SD14 paired with a 50-500m and 180mm Macro. The picture of the two Kitty-wakes is taken with my new Sigma SD1 Merrill with the 70mm Macro.
