Bella macro Jan Arie con buenos detalles y nitidez.
Aunque el F16 no dio DOF integral como resultado, el fondo limpio permite disfrutar la belleza del insecto.
Buen trabajo.
Saludos.... Ricardo

Beautiful macro Jan Arie with good details and clearness.
Although the F16 did not give integral DOF like result, the
clean background allows to enjoy the beauty the insect.
Good work.
Greetings.... Ricardo

Beautiful shot Jan Arie. Well exposed and sharp everywhere that matters. Are you sure this is a dragonfly though? The eyes look more like those of a damselfly. I think dragonfly eyes are usually closer together. I've also posted a damselfly photo today.

Hello Jan Arie,
Excellent macro shot, amazing detail. Great colours, the irridescence on the body is clearly visible. DOF is good, perhaps a little shallow but when you are that close there is not much that can be done. A great shot.

great cropping, nice mf, bravo
