[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I'm having a diversion from butterflies, having discovered a couple of old slides of a Nepalese dragon fly, taken at dusk in the wet season. The picture was taken with flash, but with a manual exposure to keep the dark feel of the time of day. I like it for the atmosphere. The feeling of a day's hard work over.

The picture has been scanned, resized and sharpened for use in TN.

Hello Alan,
What a superb capture of this lovely dragonfly! Your flash has worked really well in this shady place. Excellent sharpness and colours and I love its pose. Very well done!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
