[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a female Blue Dasher. Strange that female ones are mostly yellow/brown in color. Males are actually blue in color.

It was mid day and quite windy when I took this shot. Would have loved to have more DOF but couldn't reduce the shutter speed.

hi subhro,
nice capture of the d'flies head so close. why use polorizer on a macro lens. using a tripod, you could have gone for more depth with f11 if you wanted the depth, but this depth looks fine and ideal for this frame. tfs.
