Hello Peter,

No doubt a stunning focus on subject. Details and color really beautiful. I like its composition as well as splendid exposure.
Thanks for sharing such beautiful Dragonfly.
Regards and have a nice WE,

Razor sharp capture of this male of the species, Peter.
We have this species in India too and I've shot both male and female of it.
With first rate DOF in place, the subject stands out extremely beautifully.
