That's excellent and sound advice.

I use my DA 55 - 300 successfully (Parga Greece this May was a delight for dragonfly and damselfly opportunities, particularly late afternoon by sunlight streams.If my wife had let me I'd have spent most of the holiday watching them too!

He doesn't know everything, as a full frame user his comments regarding the crop factor on smaller sensors are very misleading.

He certainly knows how to capture dragonflies though

Very informative, great shots. I'm certainly going to have a go at this next summer, if we get one.
It does also seem to be a bit of an advert for N***n. (my apologies for the bad language!)
