Trying Out The Canon 55-250mm IS

I found I needed more reach; more reach than the 18-55mm kit lens could provide.  Thus, I went out to look for a good compliment to my kit lens.  With research, I found the Canon 55-250mm IS would be best suited to a newbie like me.  The lens was so hard to find as most camera shops no longer had it on stock.  Luckily I was able to find it at Colours in Ayala Center, Cebu.  It was the last piece they had.
So, I tried to test out it's capabilities.  I tried to shoot this dragonfly and it was a very hard shot.  They kept on moving and I find it really hard to get a good composition or a sharp image.  These were the only 2 photos I got; not that sharp but it's okay for me.
