Outstanding sharpness for hand held at 1/30 sec. A dynamic composition. I like how the leaf runs through frame and arches like a bridge. A great angle for daragonfly because it shows eyes and face well yet we can still see thorax and abdomen.
This is a beautiful species. I would try to boost the colors just a bit by adding saturation.
Your dragonfly is one of my favorites. It is a Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis).
Dragon-fly's face is showed perfectly. Of wings sharp mesh. Natural colours, beautiful. I congratulate picture.

Great focus, exposure and POV...Pastel colors give it a surrealistic appearance but detail is outstanding...Very well captured...
Gran composición con un excelente enfoque. Mucha profundidad. La hoja ha quedado perfecta y el fondo es muy adecuado.
Una excelente fotografía: J. Ignasi Tejedor
