[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo taken at the Lake Panic hide in Kruger National Park. The difference is that this is not a makro photo, but was teken from 3 metres away with the fantastic Nikon P510 with the dragonfly zoomed in to fill the frame. This is now my fav wildlife camera with its 42X optical zoom

Beautiful and colorful species of dragonfly, fine composition, lovely. tfs.

Even down to the smallest creature so well pictured here Peter, your area of Kruger is an amazing place and it is no wonder so many people want to go on safari there... I think that can be overdone but it is a brave new world.

A very good image well seen here Peter. I love your work and although I have not spent as much time in your gallery as I should, I am making note to do more... Keep on clicking..

Hello Peter,

Hallo Peter,
Glad you are back! Missed your exceptional photographs. You did well here my friend. Seeing the thumbnail I thought by myself, another Macro. What was my surprise to "view your photo details". Excellently captured with sharpness and detail, colours and DOF. A Bit of noise in the BG but hey, this is your photo and you can feel proud!!!
Best regards,
