The dragonflies in our yard tend to do sudden head turns from time to time. I'm guessing they are looking for prey or predators. Here are a few of the images where I caught them doing the turn. Nikon D810A camera and 200mm f4 macro lens unless otherwise noted.
Nikon D750 Camera & 200mm f4 lens. This is a crop at full camera resolution. 1/640s at f8, ISO 640.
You can see this dragonflies mouth thanks to a bit of a turn here. I don't get too many pictures where their mouths are visible.
