Hello Nikos,
A very pretty dragonfly presented in an attractive diagonal pose. The focus is sharp revealing much detail in its wings and body. I love its golden color, something I don't often see here in Ohio. Very nice image!!

hallo Nikos
a beauty of a composition with nice details and good sharpness
thanks gr lou

Hello Nikos,
Well captured this Dragonfly. Details and focused look good. Well BG too. I prefer much space in front of the subject when species is moving, but when its stationary, my test goes to bit tight crop to get as much as details I could achieve.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
