Wonderful picture, exellent captured.
More - if you would live 150 mln years ago, you could take photo like this with your simply kit lens :-) Dragonflies were about 70 cm long then!
Great POV my friend, brilliant colours and details. Excellent work.
Flash exposure (looks like difusse flash) POV and DOF makes it.
Congratulations, MF. Just enjoy.

Una impresionante macro, por la definición y colorido obtenido.
Gran composición, destacando los detalles más importantes del insecto, con un fondo excelente.
Muy buen disparo.
An impressive macro, for the definition and coloring obtained.
Great composition, highlighting the most important details of the insect, with an excellent backdrop.
Very good shot.
This is a great catch! I like this POV, DOF composition and colors. Interesting note and I liked red45 comment :) Nature makes everything perfect. As zoom were not invented, the dragonflies were bigger :) lol… TFS,

A great photo and also a great story!
Indeed nature has it's ways...a lot has changing and a lot is also changing as we speak...who knows, maybe our photos will stand as an example of how nature was in these years, while "people" will look at them as we look now on cave-paintings. :)
Bravo and TFS

Hello Ersin !
Wow, I would love to meet one of these big prehistoric dragonflies ! :-) But our small modern dragonflies are very beautiful too, as you show in your photo. Details, colors, composition, POV and BG, everything is excellent here. Very well done !

Great picture, love the POV and the way the wing is popping out of the screen at us.
Great not to go with it. I can imagine the noise made by a 30 inch dragonfly!

stunning point of view and excellent sharpness. Light conditions managed very well with good contrast against the bright blue sky.
Best wishes, Peter

Very nice mf, the color, light, sharpness, detail, DOF, and POV are right on..The BG helps to make it a unique/outstanding macro. If possible, a bit more space in front of the dragons face would be better IMHO.
Very well done.

Excellent picture Ersin. The colors are great and the composition and POV make this picture so pleasing. The note was extremely interesting for me as I did not know these insects were so large 150 million years ago. Excellent information! Well done & TFS!

Dzieki za troche owadziej historii. Nie chcialabym spotkac prehistorycznej wazki brrrrr. Fotka w dobrych kolorach i kadr odniosl swoj skutek.

This an excellent close up, the details, colours, POV and framing are really good, and the note is very interesting, relating ancient and modern odonates.
But when I read the title and the note, I think, you must change a bit of it.
The Meganeura, the largest odonate foud is from carboniferous period of Paleozoic, about 300 Million years ago,long time before dinosaur times. I found some concise data at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meganeura
But is only my opinion, you has the election.
