[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My vine is sleeping place for dragonflies, they don't even run away when I take photos.
They prey on tiny vine flies.

To all of you who wonder, this shot was kinda accidental, thats why the wing is out of the shot.

Таня, привет.
Это потрясающий снимок. Это почти невозможно сфотографировать. Это настоящая удача ищущего фотографа. Отличный ракурс, фантастическая резкость и деталировка, выдержка и глубина резкости.
BRAVO and my congratulations,

PS. Sorry, I have no time.

Hello Tanja.
Magnificant capture with a very nice POV. Perhaps you can tell us more how you made this picture to learn.
Very well done and thanks.

Hi! Good action, it's not easy to catch dragonfly in flight. It's a little pity of that frame and cutted wings. TFS. Skygge.

Hi Tanja

Really great in-flight capture! What a nice pose you manged to catch it in!
Excellent POV, super sharp detaisl and lovely colors. Also very nice are the DOF and the light. I don't know it it's cropped or not, but i would have been curious on the entire dragonfly in the frame :)
Anyway, a very well done work!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Tanja,
This is a very artistic shot, quite a bold composition to use a vertical format and clip the wing. It really has worked though, it's excellent. Amazing detail and technically a great shot. Is he flying?

Hello Tonja,

excellent colors, Bg, POV DOF perfect details, exelent composed and captured photo,

TFS Kyle

Weird! Are you holding its right wings between your fingers? Great shot anyway...
