This is a very close approach!
I like so much this macro due to the vivid colours and their great contrast.
Details on the wings and on the legs are amazing.
Did you point the focus to the body and then crop the image?
I ask because DOF was a little narrow, and the big eyes are slightly OOF.
Congratulations and thanks fro share it.

a nice closeup with good POV and compostion.
Some parts of the body and heaf is in shadow a weak fill-in flash may have helped to bright up.
The colours are nice and warm.

an excellent macro with a beautiful warm atmosphere. Interesting point of view to show the dragonfly's head and thorax. Nice details of the legs and very sharp wing venation are seen.
Best wishes, Peter

What a nice colorful shot you have created. Richness of colour tones are great and very unusual for our nature. Amazing POV, cropping and composition. Sharpness is great but details have been reflected a bit modestly. I think to reproduce all details of the dragonfly it is necessary to use a flash. However, it is matter of taste. The shot is done perfectly. I wish you good health and high activity on TN.

Outra ótima foto. Gosto dessa tonalidade meio avrmelhada. A nitidez da imagem é incrível e os detalhes maravilhosos. Sempre fico encantada com o desenho das asas e a transparência...sutil...linda!

this is a brilliant macro shot of this dragonflies head.
Amazing colours and a great DOF. However the red petal behind the head is a little distracting.
Very well done,
