A dragonfly feasting on a fly, at the Singapore Zoo. The stalk this fly was on kept swaying in the breeze and zooming in a fair bit softened the focus. Need some lessons from Ray on this one!

You're doing just fine, Ayush. I never knew dragonflies feasted on flies, so I got my education today!
Ayush Basu: Thanks a lot for the kind comment Ginne
Great image, I have rarely found a dragon fly stationary for more than seconds. Ray has to be the bench mark for macro shots
Ayush Basu: Yeah he sure is. Thanks a lot for stopping by.

Its an excellent shot, Ayush, especially as you have caught it snacking on what looks like a hoverfly.
Ayush Basu: Glad you thought so. Your comment means a lot to me, specially with your finesse with macro shots.
