A great close macro of a Giant dragonfly with its cicada prey taken from a great POV to show its head, powerful legs and thorax with fine sharpness and detail. It dominates the grassy BG well in this fine composition.
A great shot and thanks for posting it,
Have a good week,

This looks like a really big and ferocious one :)
The Bush Giant dragonfly is something that we see few images of here on TN so thanks for posting this.
I like the close-up on the head - that also shows its lovely colors and great natural contrast.
Bravo and TFS
