[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot in morning light. In my camouflage, I waited for two days for observing them and on the third day I got in my camouflage one hour before dusk.

This is the result after five hours waiting with out any movements in my camouflage.

Hope you like this one.

Hola amigo,
espectacular captura y excelente foco y color,
saludos Fikret.

Fikret, it is a once in a million picture in which you have got both the bird and its prey in stunning focus. The colours too are amazing.
I must say that your long wait inside the hide paid well. It is a masterpiece. Congratulations!!!

Hi Fikret
Every thing about this amazing shot is perfect. The sharpness is incredible. TFS

What you have done here is beyond my will. The five hours wait in your hiding must have paid off. Excellent sharp focus on both the prey and the hunter. Excellent color, sharpness and vivid detail of the image. A job very well done and warmest regards. Jusni

Hi Fikret,

During those five hours did you ever dream you would get a gem like this? The bird alone would be a masterpiece but with the prey in his mouth it is truly amazing. You captured them perfectly with magnificent colors and details. Background and composition are superb.

Hi Fikret.
I have found in this brilliant shot all what I find during two years. I like this species of the bird so much. There are many these birds around my countryside house. However I cannot to come near it at all and take good shots of them during this period. We also almost had not dragonflies two summers. Only this summer I could take few shots of this insect again. You are luckier photographer. You can get brilliant image of the bird with dragonfly in the beak. Images of both creatures are outstanding. Details, sharpness and colours are fantastic, DOF and composition of the shot are blameless too. Bravo. Superb work.
