Outstanding shot with immaculate sharpness and lovely colours. Great lighting and you have captured a classical dragonfly pose among its natural environment. The hairs on its body look awesome. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

You're to hard on yourself, this is a great shot. And I think the sharpness is surprisingly good considering your using a 1.4X as well.
Well composed diagonal shot. It looks fine to me.

One more good looking Spreadwing captured during the summer :)
Nice colours, details and pose.

What a sharp and detail capture of this damsel. Excellent clarity and vividness exposed and I like those bug eyes. If this is as small as our species here, than it is a mighty task to get this good looking damsel.
Please allow me to add to my personal theme and favorite.

great details and a very good ligth...
nice colors and POV, showing the fine details of the wings and body..
PS: it looks a bit oversharped, but I think later that is cause of the strong light... :)

How sharp is this Ivan. Wonderful. As with Fartash you do ot wander far from the general subjects of this wonderful nature kingdom of ours...I am so glad that there are people such as you who still care truly for the world! Great post Ivan...

Under the circumstances you mention Ivan, this is a perfect capture by all means. Even the body hairs are sharply in focus and the blurriness of those two left wings has no significance at all. Good composition, and TFS.

Hi Ivan, You acheived fantastic detail on this dragonfly. I'll agree the left wings could be better focused.
The body and eye color are super. Great POV and lighting. TFS, Richard
