Hola Ken, excelente fotografia.
Se observa buena definición y detalles.
Quiza el posadero comparte atractivo con el motivo.
Excelente exposición y buen fondo, uniforme y con suavidad de tonos de color. Un saludo

Great shot Ken,
I see your using the exact same camera and lens that I have.
Very sharp image, fine detail and beautiful colours. I like the composition of this shot, and especially the clean BG. Very well done!! Good notes, very informative.

It was a good idea to share this magnificent picture with us, I appreciate it very much. Indeed, the pose of the insect is amazing and you have very well managed the lighting and the sharpness. The compsoition with the two diagonals is superb, too.

How fortunate that you were able to get your dragonfly against such a neutral background. It really sets it off nicely. It's a really sharp image.

Working backwards I came to Fatih's amazing post and then yours. Not often do we see two beauties like this side by side. The colors, pose, details, background of this are stunning. I, too, love the turned face and the wonderful angle created with the branch. A beautiful skimmer and a beautiful picture.

Once more amazing dragonfly shot from you. I like it a lot. You have wonderful species of the insect. During two years I have not met any dragonfly in my place and only this summer I have captured few of them. However O meet only one rather simply species. Yours is amazing, pictured scene is simple and fine at the same time. Quality of the shot is outstanding. Bravo.

This is such a wonderful picture!!
I like the fact that the background is plain, it makes the subject really stand out. Amazing sharpness and details, lovely natural colours.
Very well done
