fantastic! It's hardly possible to show a better picture of this species. All details from wing tip to wing tip are sharp and perfectly presented. The light, the natural colours and the most suitable background make this a perfect picture.
Best wishes, Peter

This is another jewel from you my friend!
I can't help admiring the beauty of all the species you have there. It probably has to do with the climate and the vegetation, but to mee it seems that the insects there are so much more colorful! :)
Anyway, you took another outstanding shot of a dragonfly here and it's no surprise it already is on 7 memeber's favorites list.
The contrast of color here is splendid and the details you managed to capture it in are brilliant! You kept it in such a terrific focus! Can i ask about the f-stop value? :)
The use of flash here is also impeccable and it brings just the right quantity of light to the subject, also making those lines on itsbody and wings even more contrasting.
A truely outstanding work!!!
Bravo and TFS

A stunning shot, simply unbelievable - one of the best here on TN. Immaculate sharpness and a precise DOF. The details on the wings are amazing with nice colours and superb lighting. The BG looks very attractive and lets the subject stand out majesticallyon a neutral base. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
