Slow motion Dragonfly video iPhone 6s

We were out for a walk yesterday and stumbled across this pond in a hidden garden near Hampstead Heath. There were a couple of huge dragonflies swooping around the pond, so I thought it would be a good chance to try the slow motion video on the iPhone 6s.

It proved really hard to focus on the dragonfly, they move _so_ fast! But someone with a bit more skill, I think, could have caught some pretty amazing footage (it’s a phone!).

Below is a reference clip at normal speed to show how fast it was in reality.
