[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This dragonfly was very patient with me trying my camera for the first afternoon. Maybe it was due to the extreme midday heat.
Thinking back about it I could have had a better DOF closing the apperture a little.

Bienvenida Lau a TN.
Extraña perspectiva para una imagen de un libélula (no mariposa) ... tu relación con un F16 está acertada.
Buena definicion, excelente profundidad y presentacion.
No olvides detallar los datos de la cámara y de la exposicion utilizada, al igual que una nota mas completa, ya que son útiles para el resto de los usuarios.

Welcome to TN Lau.
Strange perspective for an image of dragonfly (not buttefly)... your relation with a F16 is guessed right.
Good definition, excellent depth and presentation.
You do not forget to detail the data of the camera and the used expoure, like one notes but it completes, since they are useful for the rest of the users.

Good shot. I really like that at first, it seems the plant is the body of the dragonfly. It took me a moment to figure it out. Really interesting perspective and very nice details in the eyes, good shot.

Good picture Lau.
Nice perspective, good colours and good details.
Well done.
I have fixed the theme.
Welcome to TN

A very good capture.
Nice details and DoF.
It appears to be cross eyed as it gazes down its perch!
A good shot,very well done and welcome to TN.

Welcome to TN Lau, correct me if I am wrong this 1st appeared on TE, I seem to rember it because i commented on it then, but I am glad to see you removed it 1st from TE.I still think this is an intresting image, of a Darter (Sympetrum) type dragonfly hidding behind the terminal spine of this Agave plant.Thank you for sharring it, look forward to seeing more.

Hi Lau, and welcome too.
Love this fighter. Unusual POV and methinks he is going squint concentrating on that sharp point. Looks like some kind of agave plant, do you have any info?

Lau, Original composition. The shot has humor and a creative feel. Iagree that a little more DOF would be nice.
Very nice and orignal shot.
Greetings, Jan

Welcome to TN. A unique compo. Hiding behind the thorn like that. Sharp details. Very nice capture. Thanx for sharing.

Very interesting perspective! The photo also has great clarity of detail, and good light. I wish the background were more uniform or subdued. A bit distracting. Great job. : )
