Dragonfly with D850...

Good morning to all of you!

Before someone feels the need to write how much better they could do with their D300, D70, or IPhone, or how many trillions of better dragonfly pictures can be found on 500px.com, -which is perfectly fine for me -, I do dragonfly photography since film and with my D1 and all its successors andI just love it...

Just D850 makes it again a little easier again than it was with my D800 and D4, especially if you want to do this kind of photography while shooting handheld on a walk through nature... Easier because of increased resolution, significant AF progress and much better images straight out of the camera...

An image from yesterday. NO post processing of any kind with exception of ©, taken handheld with my 105 AF-S, VR on, picture style on A(uto)

Normally I try to go much closer, but this one was very nervous and flew away whenever I wanted to approach...

D850' resolution, fast and extremely accurate AF gave me unexpected kind of detail though...

A 100% crop:

Thanks for your attention and kindest regards,

I like better one decent picture in a day than 10 bad ones in a second.
