Hello vral,
a perfect and beautiful picture of the dragonfly which I suppose is Aethriamanta brevipennis from
the family Libellulidae. The specimen is presented with high sharpness and brllliance aggainst the highly
appropriate background. Light and colours are professionally managed.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Kv,

Fantastic close up.
Nice colours with excellent focus and detail.
Splendid composition and light.

Namaste Vral,
it's always difficult to specify insects in other countries, so sorry, I also don't know - but I know that I like it very much, it's a pretty one and captured with excellent quality.
Thanks, enjoy the day

Hi Vral,

Very nice details and coloring in your dragonfly image. I like the soft, fading BG too. The dragonfly looks similar to some of our species in the US, but I've never seen one exactly like it. The sharpness might have been adjusted a tiny bit too much, but It certainly doesn't detract from a very well captured dragonfly -- one of my favorite subjects. TFS.

Hello KV,

This is an excelent close-up of the dragonfly shown in great sharpness and with very nice colors. The DOF you have used allowed you keeping the whole insect in focus showing, therefore, very good details of the body and part of the wings. You have had a strong light and made good use of it so that insect's colors are strong and vivid.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Vral,

The dragon fly looks like is in an act of acrobatics, pov & sharp image.TFS

Bu makro gerçekten olağanüstü bir çalışma. Duru bir arka plan ve süper bir keskinlikle birleşince enfes bir sunum ortaya çıkmış. Eline sağlık.
