This is a beautiful macro with the details of the Eastern Pondhawk seen with great clarity. The colours are brilliant and is beautifully displayed against the blurred background. This is indeed a lovely specimen, and the mostly blue and green colours of the dragonfly is in perfect harmony with one another. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
