Broad-bodied Chaser

A broad-bodied chaser taken through my 150-500 Sigma lens.

This effort is as shaky as my previous videos, but I’m sure this will improve with practise; also, this dragonfly was a fair distance away and almost at the limited of the lens.

Broad-bodied chasers were on the marsh and up in Hoo Wood in significant numbers today.

    Perhaps you were a little ambitious trying to photograph a dragonfly with a 100-500mm lens, Mike, although it’s surprising what the Sigma lens can do. I bought the ing Sigma lens to do bird photography some distance away from the subject, but I was surprised to find it took some very good close-up flower photos too.

    You did very well to hold a big lens like so steadily. I had to sell mine becuase it was too heavy for me to hold for long enough to get good shots.
