Hello Bin Cheng,
A superb in-flight capture of a couple of male dragonflies establishing territorial rights. Both are skillfully and sharply captured to be presented in a fine composition.
Thanks for shring this fine image, that desrves more credit but you must be prepared to give critique to others if you wish critique yourself.
Regards, Ivan
