Another great dragonfly pose. I don't know how you identify any of these - such subtleties in their differences.
Great color and composition! :)

selam jim; nice macro shot of this critter,good details presented ,nice BG and POV well captured with splendid colours TFS

Hi Jim,
a nice picture with good POV and composition, the colours
are fine.
The body it pretty sharp but the wings details are OOF,
look like you used to much noise reducing.
Well done.

I wonder what causes the opacities??? Dust would cause a dark mark...hmmmmm....This is the way dust shows in a negative in the darkroom, but when positive it is dark instead of white....

Another addition for your scrapbook to show your grandchildren so that they too may pass it down...You will be the family photographer...and teacher...


Hi Jim,
Is a Great shot, well composed,
lovely incline branch supporting,
the dragonfly well done TFS.
best regards/Lawhill

Hi Jim,
Beautiful DF and great composition too. POV is excellent. A little sharper could have made it rock. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Jim, It is an interesting dragonfly and one that I have not seen in North Texas. As a matter of fact, I have never even seen a photo of this one. The composition is excellent and you had a great POV. Outstanding job with the colors! They are well saturated and show well. Looks like you also have a good DOF. I am not sure what caused the glazed effect, but I think it was probably a Herculean effort to remove noise. Glad you posted it! It is a striking dragonfly.

Hi Jim,

A nice image of the Seaside Dragonlet, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing.
