Hi Christodoulos,

The branch is framing well the insect. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Indigo Dropwing. The late morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


This is a brilliant picture of a Indigo Dropwing. The dragonfly is well seen with the soft background. Excellent composition.
