Finally found a baskettail, after the rain this clear winged beauty appeared. Epitheca stella! There's a tiny brown spot at the base of the HW not found on Sepia Baskettails

Hello Brenda,
I'm impressed with this shot!! Your composition is great and you managed to capture wonderful detail and beautiful natural colors. This is a very attractive dragonfly, one that I can't ever remember seeing. I also like the way the reed runs diagonally across the frame. Well done!!

Hi Brenda.
Amazingly composed picture of a cute insect. You have isolated it from BG very good. Details of the dragonfly and twig are fine too. My best wishes and TFS.

Hi Brenda,
I like how the colors are matching one to each other ! The dragonfly eyes color with the background color ! and the green of the plant with the green in the background as well ! TFS Tina
