Bonjour Harm!

Félicitations et merci pour cette envoie très jolie.
Bienvenue sur TN!

An incredible first post!
Well timed and very well done!

Excellent first post! You've captured this dragonfly very well, focus is spot on, and DOF is pretty good too. To be honest the only things I might change are in the post-process side - I think a bit more brightness in the midtones would be good, and perhaps a little more sharpening might make it truly pop. That said it's a very good shot - capturing these on the wing isn't easy! Very well captured :-D

Welcome to TrekNature!

Hi Harm, You start with a great in flight.
It's not an easy one to get, I know.
Perfect timing, well composed and good details.
Very well done.

Welcome to TN.

HI Harm,
Wow. Great action shot.
Great details, well done.

Excellent shot, there great to see in flight like this. Well done.

Welcome to TN.
Great first shot, an excellent in-flight shot, extremely hard to do. good composition and sharpness. Well done.

Hello Harm,
why have I missed this wonderful shot?
Wow, that's your shot of the year, that's so difficult to catch a flying dragon!
Yours has excellent sharpness and the colours are marvelous. I never had the luck to see this kind of dragonfly, but it's my great wish to see one next year, keep fingers crossed!
Bye bye, have a nice day
