such an amazing creature!
I love the shot - why not showing how near you can be with wild creatures of nature.
It's impressive to see that the dragon still smiles with a person behind and in front of it.
Very well done, I hope also Adam sees, that this is excellent - thanks for sharing and bye bye

Heee do you have neareby nuclear submarins? It's not dragonfly but real dragon
Hi, Mrs. Ersin UYANIK,
you captured a rare and fascinating creature of the Hominidae family, charming, friendly, in a pleasant pose, in front of a distant but well visible lush green suburban background.
The dragon fly that got in between you and your target does not distract at all. It got transparent wings that do not cover much of the lovely creature's face behind. A butterfly would have been worse.
I do not believe that any moderator will remove your posting from the site. A wildlife site that would take itself too serious might get funny in another - less agreeable - way.
Very charming contribution my friends.
Es un monstruo?
No... es un gran amigo de TN que tiene humor además de talento.
Excelente imagen por la claridad y DOF con la que fue captado el insecto, sin inmutarse por tu presencia.
Chapeau Ersin... Ricardo... y gracias Adam por permitirla :)

Merhaba Ersin (izninle artık böyle hitap edeceğim). Notunu okurken gülme krizine girdim :) Fotoğraf şüphesiz mükemmel, Nebahat Hanımı tebrik ederim, ama sen de çok güzel yazmışsın notu. Ancaaaaak! Yorumların en can alıcı kelimesidir "ancak" :) Evet ancak kendine çok haksızlık etmişsin bence. Benim arkadaşıma bunu yapmaya hakkın yok, herşeyden önce. Acayip bir yaratık değil benim arkadaşım. Orada gördüğümüz sevimli, sevecen ve güzel bir insan yüzü ve dilerim o insanın bahtı da yüzü kadar güzel olur. :)
Selam ve saygılarımla sevgili Ersin.
Nice foreground and even better with the background. I start the day happy with this lovely picture. Thanks for posting. Regards,

Funny and very good shot of the dragonfly and human. Good idea to join a so ancient creature with a so new one. Two bit predator with very different styles!
Best regads, José M.
LOL Ersin Uyanik,
The only member who could do something like that here is YOU!!! LOL! You can tell Nebahat that she can be a great photographer but she has to work hard on composition, especially backgrounds :-)
PS Great notes!

Hello Ersin !
Yes, these Humans seem to be really strange creatures... And the dragonfly doesn't seem to be bothered by your presence behind her ! I love your notes too, funny and very interesting ! Perhaps your wife will join us on TN some day, now that she has discovered photography ?

It's a great idea :)) I love it!
The note is smashing! Really cool! :)
About the shot, your wife can always join TN...she's definately better than you :)) (just kidding, but the thruth is that she ie really good - great DOF, nice sharp details etc).
BTW, do you know why this is such a great post? Beacuse it puts a smile on every TNer's face! As simple as that. (and that's something very very few posts manage to do).
Cheers, my friend
Thumbnail game me the impression the drafonfly was perched on a man's nose. I thought you had placed it there, the way some people place them on their fingers.
However, the main page gave me a pleasant surprise; it was ERSIN who was perched on the tail-end of the dragonfly as blurred but very handsome BG!
All good things have already been written about your great talent and I agree with them all: It made every person on the TN smile!
Thanks, Nebahat, for this wonderfully amusing shot!
Your first-ever note on the BG is the best one would ever write on this site.

wow!!! ersin, this is by far one of my favorites pictures in the TN. It has it all. Is so clear and sharp. Great details and you made a very original background that gives more interest to the composition. Congrats to Nebahat.
