A fine capture of one of my favourite species of dragonfly and you present it at such a POV that would make it difficult to have it all sharp, but you have almost achieved this with F8.
Great BG and comp.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

WOW! Excellent shot!
A beautiful libellula, if a bit strange with that fat blue abdomen.
You have got an excellent sharpness and neat background.
Congrats and tfs, Jacob.

What a beauty!!!
I wanted so much to find many of these this late summer and fall but didn't quite have any luck. I only found one single male in july, took some pictures (not quite terrific)...but next year it's a must, a chalange...a "vendeta" as Greg would call it :) (BTW, same goes for A. imperator :)) )
Anyway, this here male is a splendor and you captured him in all his beauty.
The POV is really great and shows the charming colors on his back, plus the set of dark triangles on his wings very nicly.
I love the sharp details here and the impeccable blurriness of the BG, too.
A wonderful composition, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

I really like that lavender blue abdomen on that dragonfly, Jacob.
It shows up very well against that brownish-green BG.
Excellent sharpness on the body and most of the wings.
The light is just right.
TFS. : )

Una bella captura Jacob con buena profundidad que brinda no sólo el foco necesario sino también el perfecto OOF del fondo de la escena.
Los intensos y naturales colores contrastan muy bien con dicho fondo, gracias a la correcta iluminación.
El encuadre es algo centrado, pero es sólo una opinión personal.
Mis mejores saludos... Ricardo
Beautiful capture Jacob with good depth that not only offers the necessary focus but also perfect OOF of the background of the scene.
The intense and natural colors contrast very well with this bottom, due to the correct illumination.
The framing is something centered, but it is only a personal opinion.
My best greetings... Ricardo

Really wonderful close-up of Libellula depressa, an absolute favourite of mine which we don't see too often here! Your capture is razor sharp apart from the tips of the wings which I don't think is disturbing at all and the blue colour against the brownish background looks beautiful.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

What a lovely clear depiction of this splendid chaser. Maybe it is a little central in the frame, but what the heck, it is beautiful.
I like the top view POV as it shows all the body parts explicitly and with very sharp details. The colours are rich, the BG is splendid and very complimentary to the subject, and the lighting was perfectly controlled.
Great work and TFS.
