Was looking to shoot florals very late in the day when this df (Neurothemis fluctans immature male) started flitting around in the day's last light. 

90D, 180Canon, AP, f11, 1/40 sec, EV -1/3,  no flash, iso400, tripod, slight crop.

Great work, it doesn't have to be easy to catch dragonflies. You did it beautifully by highlighting all the beauty of the light in the wings.

Thank U all for the comments. I am beginning to be very fond of the potential in the twilight(?) for photography.
