Which of my lenses for dragonflies

I noticed a couple of dragonflies in my yard last night. I plan to grab a camera and see if they show up again this weekend.

Of the lenses that I have, what do you recommend to start with for dragonflies?

55-250 IS : IS plus reasonably good magnification
70-200/4 (non-iS)

I also have a set of extension tubes, but almost no experience using them.

Tripod, monopod, or handhold?

40D is the camera, if it makes a difference.


Canon EOS 40D
