Hello Friends.
This Ground Skimmer was sitting on a dry leaf. Good light was falling on him. His blue color is inviting me to capture. I have reduced brightness here.

Thanks for viewing. All critiques and comments are welcome.

Regards - Adil.

Hello Adil!

I've never seen dragonfly with such intense blue colours - it looks superb especially on brownish BG. Detailed macro, POV is very good. I bet it was hot day - insect is in typical pose to absorb less heat from sunrays.

Hi Adil
Impressive moment captured
Good shot. Nice macro....good contrast. Good efforts.
Well done..TFS

Hi Adil,
Beautiful colours, good contrast and nice species.

Well focused at the head where it must be Adil.

The blue color really stands out with the brown BG.
