Ciao Ram, splendid dragonfly with fantastic colors, wonderful details and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, Merry Christmas to you and your family, ciao Silvio

Hi Ram,
thanks for this wonderful Skimmer, red and green are the perfect colours of Christmas.
We had much snow in the last days - and right for Christmas-eve, it nearly melted away, such a pity!
But I'm glad it isn't so cold as in the last weeks, many people died around Europe because of the cold nights.
Thanks my friend - do you also celebrate Christmas?

Hi Ram.
Thanks for greeting by so wonderful picture and its cute character. Subject is really stunning. Wingspread of the beautiful dragonfly, back POV and composition of the shot are amazing. I love combination of red and green coloure. It is sweet as well as ratio of sharpness/details of the insect and leaf and smoothness of the BG. Bravo. Great job. My hearty wishes to you and your family for New 2010 Year.
