Hello Dear Friend, I just stole few minutes rom my so busy schedule to post this picture, this is how TN is irresistable. I am so irregular here for last few months. I am immensely missing TN, but could not help as I have to concentrate on my job. :(
Here is the picture that I had taken in my recent Diwali vacation. This is like dream come true. It was GOD set moment for me. I have lots of Dragonflies pictures in my gallery, but no flying thing is there. I even could not think to shoot a flying object with my Canon S2 IS. Iwas just roaming around my home twon river in sunny morning. So many Dfs were hovering and i was busy shooting them. And I spotted one guy just flying at some position like a helicopter. I just ran like a mad boy and tried focun on it. As most of you know focusing problems of S2 IS, i was trying and trying and trying to focus. I can not wite down the feelings of that moment. I was cursing my selg, i was praying to GOD I was begging to this guy to just maintain his position. At last i got this shot,as I shoot with manual mode , i increased the shutter speed and tried to get another shot. But the DF had already left. :(. I waited there for almost 1 hour for another shot but all in vain. I couldn'e get another shot. Here is whatever I got. Till, shot of my life.
Hope you like it.
