[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the many species seen during a short visit inside the edge of a Borneo rainforst jungle. This area is around an hours drive east of Kuching city.
Tried using the 200mm zoom lens and after finding the insect took a series of which this is one. Gaining good focus was the challenge.

Merhaba Murray,
Was very clear and beautiful shots
color is very beautiful, congratulations

Hi Murray,
Very eloquent POV, it's very suitable to see the characteristics of dragonflie. I think the background have a little noise level, may be you can attack this shortcoming with a touch of PP. But, despite it, the picture is nice an atractive to eye. TFS

Hi Murray.
How could I miss this wonderful shot and so attractive dragonfly. I have never met this species. It is amazing as well as brilliant POV, composition and sharpness of the image. Bravo. Great close-up.
