Emperor in Flight - Ben Twist

This 'spineless' Australian Emperor (Hemianax papuensis) is a powerful predator and one of Australia's largest insects. As I watched its fast, flitting motion I knew the auto-focus wouldn't even come close to keeping up. I needed to deftly and precisely manually focus as I panned to follow its erratic flight.
