[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was back to my wife's hometown again recently,in Alor Setar north of peninsular Malaysia.As usual,I'll be scouting for something to shoot but saw this dragonfly(didn't know the scientific name) on a nearby paddy field and I recalled there's a few member of TN that frequently post similar picture.
Without hesitation,pulled out my camera with 18-55mm lense and give it a try.Hoping will get more tips and knowledge from TN.Believe me,it is not something easy as I see in TN and I took more than 10 pictures but this is the best I can share,hope you guys like it.

Your wife's hometown seems to be rich in wild life, Joe, so extend your stay there and keep shooting. This is a reasonably good shot and I'm sure your next ones will be better.

never was easy. Nice clean shot with a good background. well done!

Hi joe,

A great shot of this dragon , Its a good parallel composition , guess the lighting was low , try using a fill in flash if needed. Have worked on a workshop on the same and u can c the difference and let me know if it does good to this great pic.
