Great shot Christodoulos!
The composition on the grass blade is perfect for the POV, taken with fine sharpness, DOF and natural colours to make this a fine portrait of this male Indigo Dropwing.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

Hello Christodoulos,
The blue color of this dragonfly is really very special, most beautiful! Lovely composition with the blade forming a diagonal and the pose of the dragonfly just showing in the opposite direction. As usual best sharpness and light-management. For me a unknown dragonfly-species. Thanks and kind regards

This dragonfly has fabulous colors and details, Christodoulos. Wonderful perch on that blade of grass in fine sharpness.
