A cooperative dragonfly

Photographing living things, especially birds and insects is one of the most rewarding as well as frustrating experience for any photographer. Because subject rarely sits still enough for you to capture them in the best way you can.

Thankfully, yesterday a dragonfly visited our home. Who was extremely cooperative or simply too lazy.

Whatever it was, she not only allowed me to snap a photograph of her with my mobile phone, but also waited another 10 minutes for me to take out my DSLR and lens and capture few more of her photographs with it.

In fact if it wasn’t for lens hood touching her, she would have likely let me photograph her even better!

While this wasn’t the best photograph of dragonfly I have taken so far (I consider this to be the best, especially due to background), it was one of easiest experience.
