Fantastic macro capture Wishnu! Amazing sharp details and clarity of image, love the low POV and great illumination from flash. I am considering this Tamron or 100mm Canon macro lens myself, both are excellent glass. Very well done.

Beautiful shot with great detail, colors and lighting. Not a Ruddy Darter however, they have all black legs, this one has pale stripes, it's the Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum).
Well.. details, like the picture a lot.

Very nice detailed picture of this sympetrum. Like you i hardly can't wait till they fly around again. Seeing sometimes photo's like this makes it a little better.

this was close! It's a bit soft but still a very good macro.
Well compsed, the low POW is very good, and nice colours.
Even at F16 the DOF is a bit shallow, but thats how it is in the macro-world.
Very well done.

Hello, this is a vey good macro of this dragonfly. The details and lighting are very good and I like the POV. The dragon is definitely not a ruddy darter as they have legs all black. This to me looks like a female common darter Sympetrum striolatum I'd have to have a better look to be absolutely certain.
