... and where have you been hiding this time??? wow I added this to my blue them..maybe I should have an EXTRA blue theme for things that are so blue that they need another name!

Hi Christan,

Congratulations on the new purchase and a great shot, the colours of the flower are stunning; I really love the head-on POV, the dragonfly is just a little soft, maybe a smaller aperture like f.8 or higher would have given you a little more d.o.f, but other then that just beautiful, wonderful composition. All the best,

Cheers Rick :)

Well composed pic. The BG and DOF are good. The subject is well detailed in your pic too.

Hi Christan,
That tone of blue is so eye catching!
It is so intense and vivid that dominates the scene.
In the other hand, the pose of the dragonfly, so graceful alighted on the top adds a different mood to the scene.
Excellent work and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hallo Christan
A beautifully coloured display of both the bee and flower. The dark almost blue colour of the flower is very eye-catching and certainly striking. The details of the dragonfly is well captured and displayed. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.
Kind regards
