Well, why not Pekka, this is a fine tele-macro capture from a good dorsal POV placing the whole animal plane perpendicular to your lenses axis, thus capturing a sharp enough image. Good first try indeed!

Well done, Pekka, keep it up, insects are great fun too!! This is an excellent image showing the dragonfly sharply in focus and against a fine background. Excellent details and colours too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

There are very fine colors in your photo. You have used well the light rendering well the blue spots of the insect. The DOF you have chosen is very good keeping the whole insect in focus.
Thank you for sharing,

This is unusual for you!
I also shot a dragonfly, for the first time, this week which I post later on!
I think you have done a splendid job! The insect is sharply focussed and the details are all there to be enjoyed. Maybe we can see some more insects from you!

I was looking forweard to this, and for good reason!
I would never have thought someone could take a macro with an 800mm lens... but I was wrong! :-))
Very good composition.
Nice natural colours.
