    Wonderful capture.

    Hard as I may try, have never managed to get a dragon on my finger. Butterflies yes but dragons no. Is there a special technique?

    Hello Bobo!

    Thank you so much for your comment!
    Well actually this dragonfly was injured when i found it, and was unable to fly.. So with the help of a friend took the picture and put it back where it belongs..

    Thankyou for your comment again Bobo! It is much appreciated :-)

    An interesting and unusual shot of the the insect. I like that your finger and the dragon fly are at an angle. Parts of the wings are very sharply in focus, but you have such a narrow depth of field, that the insect's body and head are somewhat blurry. Wish more had been in focus.

    I see you had a very wide open aperture setting of f3.5 and a low ISO of 64. You might have gotten more sharpness by setting ISO to 260 and decreasing the aperture to f7.
