A startlingly close shot of this dragonfly's face, Ersin. Ya, it needs some lipstick alright :) !!
Your bold and beautiful experiments are a pleasure to behold my friend.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Ersin,
just wonderful - such a sharp shot of this dragon - I also had to laugh about your headline, lovely ;-)
Very impressive shot, I like it so much, thanks

Hi Ersin

Great shot, the composition is excellent and I really like your POV, the detail is lovely and sharp with great colours, the darker BG really sets the shot off. I think a nice Cherry Red lipstick will be lovely.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hallo Ersin,
a great portrait of this dragonfly. I think, it was not easy to achieve and to come so close - eye in eye with the insect. Good sharpness and nice colours.
Best wishes, Peter

Merhaba Ersin.
Ne diyeceğimi bilemedim. Mükemmel ya. Ellerine sağlık.

Bu arada msn ekledim dedin ama bana onaylayacağım şey gelmedi. Selamlar

Hi Ersin,
perfect macro portrait, excellent frontal approach.
Magnificent rich colours, perfectly chosen depth of field.
Composition very straight and powerful.
The "lips" look unique and surprising, indeed.
With thanks, and best regards,

Nice shot! You've captured this dragonfly well - the key are the "lips", and those vivid green eyes. The wings at the top of the frame help anchor the image nicely. Not sure, but I think on balance I'd have liked to have the wings perfectly horizontal, and perhaps the entire legs in the foreground - but it's really funny as it is :D

P.S. I couldn't resist posting a Workshop for you!

Very funny Ersin/Adrian..a dragon in "drag"...
And just when I thought I'd seen just about everything here ;-}
-1 point for the note :(
Well done.

Well spoken, good humour!

Amigo Ersin, Increible... que control, preciosa super macroooo, saludos

Hello Ersin !
Wow, amazing green eyes !And you have captured amazing details on this face ! The POV is excellent here, as well as the ciolors and the composition. The dark BG makes the insect stand out so nicely. very well done !

Hello Ersin,

Your pictures are always impressive and this one is just great: it is the first time that I saw such colors on a dragonfly! I also laughed a lot after seeing the great workshop of Adrian :-DDD! Want to be kissed by a dragonfly? Not at all, even with those large lips ;-)

TFS my friend!!!


A bold and a very good closeup of this fellow, but i'm not sure about the details near the front part though, is this DF like this / has your flash bleached it a bit :-)
Great picture!!
