Another different sort of image. This unlike "Part A Fits To Part B" which was converted from colour to B&W, is in glorious full colour as it was seen shot against the dawn light of a cloudy morning.
This Migrant Hawker was trying to warm up on a cool morning where it had rested clutching an Iris leaf at the side of the nursery lake.

This is very nice Robert. Love the compo and artistic presentation. This something unique but has a great mood. Very sharp. Great shot.

There is something impressive in this image. I like very much the atmosphere which gets free of it. This embrace of the insect and the leaf of iris: we hang on so intensely to the life. We are not alone to do the same.
Thank you Robert.

Une belle photo originale et bie réalisé.

Félicitations !

Hi Robert, I like this backlit dragonfly. The dragonfly set against the dawn light makes for a striking image. It is very evocative and artistic. What a great idea to make it black and white, it really works. Lovely exposure and composition, great mood. Well done :)

I love the silhouette of the dragon Robert! Excellent depth of field, the dargon's wings are perfect!
Your positioning is faultless!
