Dramatic Dragonfly

I’d been trying to capture a dragon fly with some dramatic side lighting for a few days during lunch.  I had my wireless flash setup to the left of a stem where I noticed the insects often perching.  Then, I basically waited, with camera on tripod.  But, of course none landed on the stem I had picked… but on this one instead.  As time was running out for my break, I took the camera in one hand, and held it outstretched – so as not to frighten the creature away.  But, I couldn’t frame or focus the shot like this… so I linked the camera to my smartphone, & did the focus, composing, and firing there.  Not ideal, but it worked.
