Hello Peter,
A nice capture from an unusual POV. The harsh lighting was well managed, the sharpness excellent where in focus over the body and inner part of the wings showing details not often seen.
I like the effect of the light shining through the dark patches at the wing bases.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend,

Great POV here Batu! Impressive details and beautiful colours. Exciting light.

Hello Peter,
Fantastic sharp close up.
Enjoy the weekend,

Ciao Peter, great macro of fantastic dragonfly, wonderful natural colors, superb sharpness and splendid details, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hallo Peter,
du hast hier einen interessanten Betrachtungsstandort, für diese Aufnahme des Plattbauch Weibchens, gewählt. So wirkt die Libelle irgendwie größer. Schärfe und Farben sind bestens.
Viele Grüße,

Impressive photo from an impressive POV Peter! Very good composition, wonderful lighting and great sharpness!


Very nice POV and focus sharp over much of dragon fly. I would wonder if you had stepped up to F/11 if you might have had the wings in focus as well? TFS.
