[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Water Plant” is the name of this photograph. Nature photography can be very interesting and sometimes you discover creatures that you never saw as you took the picture. For example, I just realized this dragonfly resting on the water plant. Using a 260 MM focal length, this is little creature was not visible to the naked eye.
This photograph was cropped, level adjusted, framed and saved for the web.

Hi Jim,
thas a phantastic shot.
I like the details, you have to look twice to see everything, special the nice damselfly.
The colours are phantastic, such pretty contrast from yellow to violet.
The reflection brings life into the motive.
Very good, thanks

This is a treat, Jim. We get both a lovely plant, and a wonderful little insect on it. Nice work!

Excellent composition, and very nice colour.

Hi Jim,

I'm not a great fun of complementary colors but this one looks outstanding. I just can't stop admiring it. You did an excellent job with this picture! Composition, framing, sharpness, everything looks perfect. Well done! TFS!
