Hello Annick,
This shot of the Black-tailed Chaser is sharp and well composed, the white flower on the head and busier BG making your previous post of this species better.
Nevertheless this is still a fine capture.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Annick,
Although I prefer your previous capture this one is rather special with the Skimmer hiding her head from you. The rest is captured really well and is sharply in focus. Details are sharp too and colours natural.
TFS and regards, Ulla

I really like the beautiful gold tone of this dragonfly. Black and gold are such complimentary colors. Excellent POV and outstandiing focus of entire dragonfly. Exposure is perfect.

Bonjour Annick,
Wow ! Beautiful species that I have never see in real. The sharpness and light are very good. To nibble, the environment is nice but makes a busy background.
Congratulations and TFS,
