Hi Art,
really such a pleasant view of this dragonfly in full portrait. The eye is so stunning and you have shown it in details.
Very dramatic close up!


Hi Art,
Great in your face close up. In fact this is a female Cherry faced meadow hawk. I like it. Wow you and Rick are posting again. You guys have inspired me, I will post something tommorrow . Have a great weekend.


Your composition is very nice. Not easy to capture a timid creature such as a dragon fly so close and acquire such fine sharp focus. Your DOF is at least a centimeter. Do you think he was "looking" at you?

TFS, Mike
