[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taking a nap? Not now, not in a broad day light and not in an open space like this. Well, If I'm a predator like dragonfly... you're damn great meal to me. Armed with camera and macro lens, so no worries about the fate of this little fella. All I want is a simple picture of this beautiful and elusive aerial predator, the Robberfly.

Hi Leo,
this is a well executed photo as you have very good colour and sharp detail overall going for it and the only spot that could of been a bit better is the oof branch tip which would of benefited from a more stopped down aperture,say f/11 or 13.A fascinating insect with much eye appeal going for it and I thank you for sharing it with us all. Bob
