The wings were still drying, they flopped all over the place when it tried to fly so it was apparent, it was in distress to see me so close. As it was, the Flash helped speed the drying of it's wings. Later i was in distress, I shot everything in HQ instead of SHQ losing half of my potential data.

Lovely Damselfly Scott. Anyone can be wise after the event I know, but perhaps opening up just one stop would have lifted it away from the background nicely.
