A great dragon model :)

Dragonflies are normally very skittish and not easy to approach...but once in a while, you'll get lucky, especially if they are busy eating, mating or cleaning itself. Or if you're extremely lucky, you'll find one that will let you shoot all you want, even though he/she is not pre-occupied with any activities :D

However, that doesn't mean you should approach your target hastily. There is this "RIH" (rapid incremental habituation) technique i found in a forum. Give it a read and try it out yourself. I am sure you will find it useful! Good luck!
