Libeloyles or Dragonfly are insects of order odontognathon. They are very propagated in the all world, everywhere where exist sweet waters, with which they are narrow tied up their life, in the stage [nymfis].They have many and very beautiful colours. They resemble as helicopters.

This Dragonfly was for enough hour in my garden asking few dew. Thus and i I made her few efforts together

Hello Marina
This a very nice and difficult shot..I have one in basically the same pose which is also a little unsharp in areas..great details on the wings and a lovely dof.
A note as to what he is would have been good and informative.
Best regards

Hello Marina,

It's a pleasure to see this picture from you! Your photographic abilities are getting better and better. I'm happy to see how you applied some of the tips I gave you. Your pictures are getting better from both artistic and technical point of view.
Unfortunately I can't help with the ID of this dragonfly. I have no experience whatsoever with these creatures. Hopefully someone will be able to identify it for you.
Your composition is very, very good! I love the way you positioned the insect along the upper third of the picture and the stick in the middle thus creating a "T" shape. The absolutely brilliant background not only isolates the subject but it also has great importance from a chromatic POV. The colors are warm, bright and well saturated and contrast very good. Exposure was well controlled and focus accurate. I appreciate that you shot perpendicularly on the wings so that the DOF is large enough to comprise the whole subject. Just as I told you. It feels great to receive such feedback. I have a feeling that very soon you will start to improve your PP abilities too. Thank you for sharing!

With friendly Regards,
