Drying before Flying

Drying before Flying - Butterflies, Dragonflies and Demoiselles
A female Banded Demoiselle (Calopteryx splendens) drying the dew from its wings prior to take off at Venta Icenorum, Caistor St Edmund, Norfolk. I used positive exposure compensation to correctly expose the Demoiselle against the bright sky. The Demoiselle was side lit so I used a reflector to ensure the light was evenly distributed. I also used a tripod and remote shutter release to ensure that the image was pin sharp.
