Dew on Dragonfly

This one for Maurizio (maurydv).

This winter for use (photographers) was very bad, no mist or dew factor. Most of the days it was cloudy and windy. But it all changed after 1st of this year, at last some dew, like on this dragonfly captured in Lalbagh with back sunlight.

Hello Nagaraj,
Excellent capture of this dragonfly.
I like your pov,dof,focus,sharpness and frame.Well Done.TFS
Best regards Siggi

really an amazing artistic shot. i felt that the background is well balanced with the object of focus, even though slightly off-centered. It is an art more than thinking about dragonfly.

Hi Nagaraj,

Fantastic and excellent close-up capture of a dragonfly from a fine vantage point with great colours and delightful composition.
TFS and Cheers,
