Hi Erwin,
such a stunning red upon a whitish blurry background.Well seen in great sharpness and clarity.
Even the spider lines could be noticed easily.
The netlike wings are really lovely here.
Nicely composed shot.


Hello Erwin,

Wow! What a fantastic red dragonfly! No idea about its name? Colors looks very natural and you managed well to be at its level. The only thing maybe is that I would have moved a little bit on the left in order to not have the blurred branch behind it.

Bye and TFS,
