    So what can you photograph if it rains cats and dogs, in South France

    The gutter

    But then the air is clearing

    The Arize is a lot wilder than usual as it enters the cave of Mas d'Azil

    obviously also at the exit.

    We also passed the cross way with 12 little chapels that I used as Landmark

    Thanks, Drizzle and Lisa. Some more then

    Yesterday we visited the land of the ntenae people, Andorra. But they all looked like normal, somehow. But -not unexpectedly- a lot of snow:

    Enroute, you pass Ax Les Thermes with its hot spring. It's still a bit autumn there:

    Dawn, this morning:

    and eventually as the sun rises, the valley gets the first sun rays:

    Thanks, Andre. You have a great eye. It's nice to have the location and environment, but it's essential to "see" the best shots and take them.

    Thanks, Don and Turbo, still more in the pipeline to come.

    Thanks, Evo, Edward, Borek

    And now, today I made the pic finally, which I had in mind when I bought this camera, a flying dragonfly. One of the most challenging ever.

    I have seen more flying dragon flies and certainly in better quality, but I never have seen anything like this before:

    See what I mean?

    yes sure, but there is still something very odd, that I was completely unaware of.

    Maybe it helps to imagine a 3D picture -using the fish in the pond-, when I show the whole uncropped frame (15% size). Also, I shot horizontal tilting down maybe some 10-20 degrees

    What is so odd?

    How come it is in focus? You were hunting the dragonfly, or taking pictures of the pond?

    Isn't that an amazing feature of the 7D, obviously I was hunting/tracking him and this particular shot was in tracking/predicted focus and re-focus delay as he is clearly outside the focus array.

    Hint: look carefully at the head and body co-ordination.

    I think I know what you mean - head is still parallel to the horizon. At least it looks this way.
