This dragonfly was so kind to keep still and to make some photos of it.

Photo is slightly cropped, sharped and contrast is changed.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Jan Arie!
Congratulations on this very well taken shot. I really like everything in it: the composition, exposure, sharpness, POV and contrast. Usually there's something I don't like, even though I don't say anything, but this one I just admire. Regards,

Nice back-lit effect, with the subject standing out very well on this dark BG. Excellent composition in this closeup.
