You are too humble... (if this is possible)! I mean, your picture is superb, and it would resist to many comparisons with other macro pictures presented here on TN. It was a very good idea to dive into your archives and to work on this beauty. The details are amazing and the colours very pleasant. I'm so glad that you present it to us.
Many thanks and kind regards

Amazing macro! The features of the dragonfly are extremely sharp and it seems to be glittering on the back. TFS.

This is simply superb macro shot. The sharp detail on the head, eyes and body is just as good as it can get. The light and reflective eye is well shown and the color tone works well. The bokeh effect is helping to highlight this dragonfly.
What lens was used for this?

This is indeed a very close capture of the Trithemis.
It is a sharp image,but looks as though you might have applied just a little too much sharpening (or reinforcing).
I find that sometimes,if it necessary to sharpen twice,it is better to just use the 'sharpen edges' option,if you have one,to avoid any graininess or pixellation.
Super-macros are notoriously hard to pull off well,so this is still a very good image.
Thanks for sharing it.
