Hello friends in TN.

I'm not sure about this dragonfly ID. It is slightly bluish to be a slender skimmer but rather light to fall in the category of asiatica. I really hope friends out there will be able to help me.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni.
This is an impressive result of using f/13. DOF is selected precisely and details of the dragonfly is ultimate. Once great diagonal structure of the image, pleasant reddish colours of the surrounding and nice blurriness of the BG. Bravo. Well done.

Excellent capture of this pretty dragonfly. The colors are beautiful - the details are nice and sharp. I love the position on the branch showing off the wings. An excellent diagonal composition.

Hello Jusni,

A very attractive Dragonfly, and photographed very well, nice composition with the subject diagonally across the frame, I like it.


Hi Jusni,
A nice capture of this beautiful ground skimmer (I think) if it is small else sorry I don't know the ID. Very well composed sharp shot. Many thanks for sharing.

Hi Jusni,
Like the others, I wish I could help with the ID.
I did have look, but could not nail it down :(
I like the diagonal presentation, great DOF/detail here..
Well done,

Ciao Jusni,
bellissima macro di libellula, ottimi POV e composizione, molto buona la definizione dei dettagli, splendidi i colori e lo sfondo dalle tonalità calde.
