Butterfly, Dragonfly, Insets, and Moth at my backyard

Dragonfly agile predator
Yellow wings Butterfly
Rhyothemis phyllis phyllis in flight.
Capturing dragonflies in flight is not easy. This yellow wings dragon flies in erratic pattern when its try to catch a prey. Only the male usually patrols the territory in a practicable pattern. I shot about 50 frames for this in flight dragon. Most of the pictures are blurred out of focus or no picture at all. Only 3 keepers and this only one worth posting.

Red Dragonfly attacking flying insect
Trithemis aurora (Male), I am lucky to capture this agile predator trying to catch an insect.
Red Dragonfly landing on flower
Trithemis aurora, landing on False Bird of Paradise Flower ((Heliconia psittacorum Nickeriensis) 
This one is easy, you just pre-focus on the flower and anticipate the landing.
Yellow Dragonfly flying
Trithemis aurora (Female), or maybe  Neurothemis terminata.
Another challenge is shooting against a bright sky. You have to compensate the exposure to +1 or +2 depends on brightness.
