Hi,

From using my FZ1000 in manual focusing mode with a "sharp edge highlighting" kind of live view, it's my impression that the edges of the mesh of dragonflies' wings are quite dominant, and these edges are sharp in your photograph, too.

I'd not be suprised if the algorithms used by your camera got "attracted" by these edges. It might be worth it to try different targets (like uniform graph paper) under controlled conditions (with the camera on a tripod) to see if the problem is universal.
