[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Red-veined darter Sympetrum fonscolombii, female.

Sorry, but I have nothing wise to say about this picture...
It is simply a dragonfly poprtrait, the picture is full-frame.
I hope you will like it.

Hello Elroyie,
Wow, excellent macro shot, amazing detail, especially in the eyes. Great exposure, good DOF but maybe a little shallow. Natural colours and a great warm and neutral background. Great job.

Hi Elroyie,
wonderful shot, excellent sharpness and a nice POV, I like it very much, thanks
