He was talking with his buddies and they told him of this gal that takes good photos of dragon flies. So he just stopped by to say hi. I like your POV and DOV along with your composition. Great colour, he will be happy.
Thanks for sharing

A lucky day for you!
Excellent photo in great sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours. Nice POV, composition and blurry background.
Seems a bit over saturated but nice pose (at least he is not going to peck you!!). Don't believe I ever saw a dragon that was so purple ... maybe the magentia too much (note highlights of wings that should not be purple). BTW, when dragon alights and holds up their tail like this, that is an indication they have just emerged from the predaceous aquatic nymphal stage. TFS

Superb capture with perfect angle.
great clarity , colour and composition.
I was beginning to wonder if this was just a coincidence or if the raised hind-end pose was just a Florida thing. I then read Mike's note and see it is because it just emerged from it's nymph stage of growth. See there...I learned something new today from this wonderful site and your photo!!
Love the fine focus and vivid colors you were able to obtain on this pretty specimen. That colorful bluish eye with it's little spots is so attractive, and Yes... I really like the pose!! Great work!!
