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

hallo Ram

thanks gr lou

Ciso Ram, great macro of wonderful dragonfly, fantastic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Ram,
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.
