[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This dragonfly has interesting wings and is holding them at an unusual angle. He was some distance away so the image is not as sharp as I would have liked. I tried resampling using "bicubic sharper". It seems to have added an interesting effect.

Hope you enjoy.

Hi Reid, the composition and colours are great. The dragonfly adds a whole lot more. Good work!
The image itself is quite noisy. A noise reduction can easilt fix that.

Hi Mr. Reid,
This is a picture wing dragonfly. And you have captured is very well. Please see Mr. Ramthakur's & Mr. Sumon's(Mana) posts of this and you will get enough information about it.
Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Reid, Though the technical quality leaves something to be desired the composition, color and BG are excellent in this eye-catching shot of what I believe is a female Spotted Skimmer. Though it looks superficially like the Asian Picturewing it is quite another species.

Great shot here...good detail and wonderful dragonfly pose. :)

Hi Reid,
Great capture. Excellent color and detail. Right on focus but a little noisy. I did a workshop, hope you don't mind :)

Celithemis eponina


Witaj Reid,
Yes, the angle of inclination of dragon-fly is very profitable for painting. Fantastically arranged wings. Unusually. I be please very that you shew us this painting.

Reid, Wonderful shot and lovely BG. The folded wings and the position of the dragonfly is standing out in the picture. Excellent focus. Well done. Ganesh

selam , excellent shot and very good composition nice pov and bg with splendid colours.good details presented
Well done !
Regards ridvan

Very beautiful shot. I love the muted tone, the composition, and the fine details of the head. His landing seems precarious, as if his little legs won't keep him there. The lighting seems perfect for this shot; very well done!

Hello Reid,
This is a nice shot and the wings are well shown. A good dof but it seems the focus is just off.
Good photo,
