Common darters in tandem

Dragonflies on the wing are fast, making it tricky to photograph them in flight. However, when paired up they fly more slowly, making it easier to get focus locked on. Because this pair were flying directly across my field of view, I was able to get them both sharp, even with a wide open aperture.

F/5.6, 1/1,250th second, ISO 400
Accepted: Bristol 2019
