A warm welcome to TN.
What a gorgeous shot of this pink skimmer.
An outstanding color.
The exposure is super, as the wing details are rendered without any burn-outs.
Great DOF resulting in a clean out-of-focus background.
Wonderful presentation of the insect with the wings nicely spread out.
Good composition with the diagonal branch.

A beautiful dragonfly captured with skill, Janice.
We have a similar one in Asia that goes by the name of Scarlet Skimmer.
This is apparently a male.
Let me also welcome you to TN.
Thanks and regards.

a nice picture of a beautiful dragonfly shown against a smooth and nicely coloured background.
The whole composition and the point of view are attractive.
A slight increase in depth of field (by f/8 to f/10) would have been advantageous.
Best wishes, Peter

Welcome to TN!
A superb capture of a male Roseate Skimmer, taken from a fine POV that shows its colors and details with excellent sharpness against a neutral BG. I also like the simple composition on the twig.
Thanks for sharing this delightful image and I look forward to seeing more from you!

What a beautiful capture of this colorful dragonfly.
You've got a very sharp image, on which we can appreciate the forms and textures of the insect's body.
The out of focus background works great here.
WEll done and thanks for share.
Me best regards,

that gem of a dragonfly in exquisite colours is very nicely presenting its pink abdomen in flashy contrast, perfectly set off against the drab green distant background. Very well composed picture, perfectly reduced to the essence.
Thank you! With all my best wishes,

lovely piece of shot showing the skimmer in excellent clarity and natural colours. Nicely muted background and the softness and blurriness add beauty to your pleasant capture.
