Wow, Silvio, this is superb!
You have captured this damsel fly with perfect details and colours.
The diagonal composition across the shot is very attractive.
Nice muted b/g to act as a backcloth for the fly.

One of your absolute best...perhaps it is the colour blue which attracts me...I have added it to my and group theme 'blue things part two'. A sharp image. And you are still using ISO 800..Seems as though we have opend a new window.. or door here Silvio. fine continuing work! And better yet...IMPROVING!
