I was very, very surprised when they stop on my hand. With the camera in the other hand they only let me one “click” and went to another place.

Hi Jose,
Looks like you were very lucky to have this happen and to get the shot. I like the detail and how clear it is.

Hello Jose,
Not sure how you managed to pull this off, but it is quite a unique image. The dragonflies seem very content with perching on your hand, I suppose they had other things on their mind at this particular moment:) Well done!!

Hi Jose,
interesting dragonflied. Nice colours. Very good point of view. Excellent presentation.
Have a nice day,

Hello Jose,
On a safe hand and comfortable enough,really lucky situation and understand the effort behind the catch,as they rested on the opposite side of your left hand.Remarkable sharpness and details.

Bonjour Jose,
Très étonnant de lire que ce couple s'est posé sur ta main..un cadeau pour le photographe! Mais pas facile de photographier ainsi.
Une espèce que je ne connaissais pas encore.

Hi Jose,
What a wonderful luck you had to have a mating couple of dragonflies stop on your hand! I had some butterflies stop on my hand, but I could not use one hand to take pics. Very precious capture in perfect sharpness, great fine details, and brilliant natural colors. Very well done, my friend. Thanks and best regards!

Fantastic. You caught this once in a life time moment very well. Thanks, JC
