Dragonflies are in the same league as Butterflies in that there are thousands of beautiful pictures of them in the internet. However, for some reason I never had an opportunity to take a photo of them until my destined dragon fly was waiting for me in Sentosa island, one lazy Saturday evening. The wind was high and he was whizzing around spending not more than a fraction of a second at a given place. I took my chances, pre-focused on a particular twig he seemed to prefer and waited.
