greeting lou

A fantastic moment, Martin.

Good fill in flash, I guess.

Nicely composed with a neytral background. Composition-wise well done
with that beautifully designed vertical perch.

Very informative photography through the content.

Thanks for sharing

HI Martin,
our both posts are perfect together, I also decided to show this dragon today ;-)
It's amazing to see the "birth" of it, you captured a fantastic moment.
I like it very much, thanks

Hello Martin,

You have photographed a very interesting moment from this insect life. Your close-up is very good as you have chosen a fine DOF and you have made good use of the light. Insect is sharply shown with fine details. Colors are looking very natural.

Thank you for sharing,

Best wishes, Peter
