Took this shot of a Common Whitetail while in Oklahoma visiting my daughter. I saw many dragonflies on this particular day and was thrilled when this little lady posed perfectly for me.

Amaizing species and wonderful picture Ron. I like this picture. Congratulation and thanks for sharing it. Saludos.

Hello Ron,
If I did not look at your focal length, I would have sworn that this was taken with a macro lens. A Beautiful composition with explicit sharp detail, colours, depth and contrast. Excellent work my friend.
Best regards,
Thanks for your comment on my Hippos.

Hello Ron

WOW ! great macro of this insect,
with superb focus, sharpness and details, TFS


a very good clarity and nice dorsal view, Ron. i have seen and photographed this species. you are lucky to find one female perching so high above ground. that's not their characteristics. while males love to perch slightly above ground and often above water surface, females are always fond of lying on ground. that's why maximum possibility of camouflage. yours one is an exception :)
yes, as you had said.. posed for you :D

Ciao Ron. An interesting angle to have the interesting specie of dragonfly talken in good details and sharp. beuatiful naturalcolours against the intrigant OOF BG.
