In retrospective I could have used higher speed but I was focusing, (no pun intended), mostly on Virginia Rails with my setting.

I wish you’d caught it a hair sooner, before it was heading slightly away, but I also wish I could capture any DIF sharply at all! Vibrant colors and great bg are very appealing.
Good light,
Craig

Great catch! You would give the impression of not "going away" if you moved the 'fly further back in the frame.
Excellent detail and colours.
Well-done!
Sandy

Fine in flight image of Common Green Darner - neat freeze of the wing motion and nice light.

Looks great to me, Karl. I like Sandy's suggestion of moving it back in the frame, if there is room.
