[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not sure exactly what type of dragon fly this is, but the subject was really a test for me. I had to wait and wait till it eventually decided to rest its wing. Flying all around me back and forwards. It was me that nearly gave up because of the hot weather. In the end I was just glad that I managed to get a few shots.

I have to say one thing though, it did seem alot bigger when it was flying towards me.

Well hope you like this one, if anyone can give me more details on this one, it will be much appreciated. All my books are back in the moving boxes, yet again :-)

Hi Demetrio,

It appears to be the Broad-bodied Chaser. Libellula depressa.
Well done on the capture and composition.

Yasu Demetrio,
Very nice close up.I liked details,simple BG,framing and composition a lot.

Hello Demetrio,
Nice picture! It has good POV and framing. And of course I appreciate your patience to get this. Details are good, but abdomen is heavy overexposed what is quite distracting.
Overall, well done on this one!

Hi Demetrio, good picture with great details on the wings.
But the body is a little overexposed.
