[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I know its a "basic" shot, nevertheless THRILLED to capture him and even had to write about him. It may seem like nothing to you; BUT THEY ARE RARE IN MY AREA and to see him; omgosh i just HELD MY BREATH and caught him and had to write about it too! my blog

Will upload the shot when he was holding onto a water droplet; didn't include it here because this is how I found him "naturally" acceptable for the standards of TREK !! :0)

thanks for viewing!

Hello Brenda,

I am on your page after a long time, hope you'll forgive me for that and I Hope too life is good and it must be as I always say after shooting a dragonfly of your choice. You've been humble here when you termed the shot 'basic' and rightly so but this is quite a presentable shot keeping in view what you have said in your interesting note and the excitement you have shown there. It is always good to know a new species and to shoot one for that purpose.....I am impressed. You'll get another chance, for such a chance is always there....thanks a lot for sharing this excellent one....take care....warmest regards/Abid

Ciao Brenda.
Splendida foto di questo esemplare di libellula,ben fotografato con un’ottima nitidezza,eccellenti i colori naturali,bene la composizione brava.
Ciao Marco.
p.s. sono belle le libellule vero?

Hello Brenda,
You enthusiasm deserves more than the two points I have available. Yes, you will get more opportunities but this first capture is very special and I am glad to be able to share in it. Well done.

Hi Brenda,the details are not at the top but no problem,it's always a great satisfaction a first time for your gallery of a red dragonfly.Very good colors and nice composition too.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Brenda, congratulations on your first red dragonfly!
I can see why you were so excited, this is a beautiful specimen. I think you did a good job of capturing him as he perched so nicely for you. I love the framing and the way the stem goes diagonally up and then bends downward a bit.
I can still remember my first red dragonfly, because they are not that abundant in my area either. The only thing lacking I believe is a little bit of contrast, otherwise an attractive shot. Well done!!

Hi Brenda,
excellent shot of this red dragonfly. Very good point of view. I like your presentation.
Thanks for sharing,
