Excited! I captured something similar with my S21 Ultra's 10x camera with no time to set focus:

Congrats, a mating wheel in flight, shot with a smartphone @ 10x zoom. That happens not so often!

Shooting mating wheels in flight with 'regular' cams is a big challenge. I only once had the luck capturing a broad-bodied chaser (German: Plattbauch) with my FZ1000. Note that this kind of dragonfly start and finish their act completely in flight, you will never see them as sitting mating wheel. Their flight lasts 5-8 seconds. Here are 2 of my photos
