I’m very happy with this photo because of the way it was taken. For a few months now my “walking around” camera” has been the Panasonic GX8 and the Panasonic/Leica 100-400mm lens. It is light, small, and has great image quality. Because the GX8 is a 4/3 camera the lens has the 2X multiplier so the 100-400 is the equivalent of 200-800mm.
I was on a boardwalk at the Celery Fields when I spotted the Dragonfly. It was maybe 8 feet or so from the boardwalk, sitting on top of some tall grass. I put the lens out to the full 400mm and took some shots. This is one of those. Not bad for such a distance.
