Impressive Joe and this minimalistic composition works here. The colors, details and BG make this fella stand out. Excellent work

Hope that your day finished well. This is a good well focused shot showing fine detail with a good dof. Colours and natural and clear. I like the overhead view, not always easy to get. Well done.

Very lovely image, beautiful colors (including background) and details. Lighting looks superb for this portrait. I would have preferred some space on top and left, you know. tfs.

You must have some direct connection to the Creator Joey...this looks almost like a prototype if not the real thing which it most certainly is...Absolute genius...

Great photo Joe.
The quality of the chaser is very good, but against a plain BG is very special. Fantastic colours and sharpness. Good composition.
Have a good weekend,

This is the kind of clear overhead shot that zoologists like for their collections.
Not as aesthetically pleasing as those shot from more interesting angles perhaps,but supposedly better for ID purposes.
Anyway,a great capture.

Hi Joe. Once again this is a fine close up of this Four-spotted Chaser . Your focusing is very good with fine detail all over. With good use of the light on the wings . All with natural colours. It stands out so well from the plain BG. well done TFs.
Have a good weekend.

Excellent low POV and exact sharpness against the smooth BG.
Congratulations and a happy birthday, Pawel

Impresionante el enfoque, la profundidad, la luz y los colores. Un gran trabajo bien realizado técnicamente y muy llamativo por los factores comentados.
Un abrazo Joe: Josep Ignasi.

I trust you enjoyed your birthday.
An excellent capture of L. quadrimaculata, a fresh, recently emerged specimen that shows its colours so well before it becomes grey and worn
+: Sharpness, DOF (a little too shallow), pose, POV, BG, composition, colours and lighting.
-: none, it's a fine portrait of this species.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

A lovely view of this beautiful Dragonfly, normally common here at this time but almost absent this year due to the cold and grey weather. Excellent low POV, sharp details and beautiful colours.
TFS and have a nice weekend! Ulla
