Original photo of this dragonfly in this pose. Good sharpness, details and very beautiful colours. Excellent DOF.

Hello Bill
Impressive photo from an unusual but interesting POV. Excellent composition and wonderful colors. The BG is fantastic.

Hello Bill,
I have looked through your gallery and your standard of photography is remarkable. This image is unusual and very beautiful with it forming a cross on the diagonal twig. I also like the lovely colours of the background and the suggestion of ripples on water. Very pleasant to view. Best wishes.
