UK Dragonfly ID? (5DII + 70-300L 100% Crop)
Aug 10, 2011
This is the largest Dragonfly I've ever seen in the UK - it was easily 4" long.
I've seen them this size in Africa, but never in the UK.
Trying to identify it on the web came to nothing. Anyone know what it is?
It was hovering around my front door, caught an insect mid flight, sat down, ate it and then rested for plenty of time for me to get the 5D2 and 70-300 L out.
I tried first with the 400/5.6 L but the 3.5m shortest focal distance of this lens makes it a bit too long.
Really loving the 70-300L as you can see from the 100% crop!!
