I have a Canon Rebal T3 with a 300 zoom. I was at this park called the Rhodendron Garden that has a sort of nature. I saw this Dragonfly that kept flying around, but just didn't want to land anywhere. Well I really wanted a photo of it so I waited around. Finally it landed. The dragonfly landed maybe 25 ft or so from me. It was really blending in to the background from where I was standing so I kept my eye on it and then put the camera up to my eye and took the shot before it flew away. I only wish the shot would have turned out better.

I was at a park called The Rhodendron Garden. This dragonfly was at least 50ft from me. It took awhile for me to get this shot. From that far away it was blending in with the background. I have a Canon Rebel T3. My zoom is only a 300 and not a wide angle. I was determined!
