I drove to Lakeland on Tuesday night to shoot the Flying Tigers and Stone Crabs for the Florida State League. There are no actual photo pits to shoot from at the stadium, but you can get some excellent shots from both the 1st and 3rd base sides especially in the afternoons. Which to me makes it worth the dive through Orlando

I only stayed at the game for about an hour and then I had to drive home to be at work the next day. Before I left I did see something a little different than I normally see while shooting from the end of the Tigers dugout. One of the players from the Flying Tigers got my attention and pointed to one of his teammates. I was kind of unsure what he was pointing to at first. Then I fiquered it out. A Dragonfly was catching a ride on Flying Tigers left fielder Chao-Ting Tangs hat.

Everybody in the dugout got a good laugh and I took few shots which must made the Dragon fly lose interest in the hat because he flew over and landed on my camera for about an inning. I guess that is one way to get good seats.
