Very nice macro of this skimmer in beautiful colours and good sharpness. The background is a bit busy. Attractive choice of composition.

Ciso Ram, great macro of wonderful dragonfly, fantastic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
I love seeing red colored dragonflies, probably because they are not often seen here near my home. This is definitely a beautiful specimen who unfortunately perched in a difficult spot when trying to photograph it. Overall a nice shot, but I agree with Peter that the BG does seem a tad bit busy.
This has happened to me many, many times as dragonflies (NEVER SEEM TO LISTEN) to my suggestion as to where I want them to land:)
I tried to blur the BG as much as I could in a WS. Hope you don't mind.
