Hello friends in TN,

Dragonfly has an exciting link back to the long distant past with fossil records dating back as much as 300 million years.

The dragonfly order Odonata (meaning ‘toothed jaw’) has two sub orders, Zygoptera which contains damselflies (and demoiselles) and Anisoptera the true dragonflies. True dragonflies are usually larger and stouter than the damselflies, tend to be stronger fliers and have a hindwing noticeably broader then the forewing, while damselfly wings all tend to be the same size. Dragonflies also hold their wings at right angles to their body while resting while damselflies tend to hold them parallel.

Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni,
Alhough the background is a bit noisy, this is a beautiful photo in splendid colours and taken from an original POV. It leads to a fantastic diagonal composition. Good sharpness and details.

Hello Jusni,
The from-below frontal POV makes a perfect diagonal composition with the wings of this femalr of a species of dragonfly unknown to me. The head and wings are well in focus with fine sharpness. The natural colours and clean Bg make this a fine image.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hello Jusni,
An excellent macro combined with a very informative note for me! Splendid sharpness and detail, shallow DOF (could be a little deeper), good light balance and very good contrast my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards,

Hello Jusni,
Very nice diagonal composition. A splendid macro with wonderful colors, very good sharp details and perfect exposure.

Hello Jusni

First of all i love that gradient of the clear
color tones of the background, then, fine POV
and the way diagonally is framed the insect
if brings dynamism to the image, TFS


Interesting POV and interesting composition Jusni! Wonderful BG and wonderful colours too!
