Hi Jim,
What a splendid capture of this lovely dragonfly. Brilliant focus on the eyes and the beautifully patterned thorax. I don't mind the rest being rather soft here as it looks so good like this anyway. Fine soft background and nicely composed too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Jim,

A fine looking dragonfly with the wonderful stripes. His wings look huge. Excellent colors, fine details, fantastic pose on the diagonal branch and superb background.

Hi Jim. Your dragonfly has a fine striped body. of back and yellow. you have captured fine detail and natural coours. with a nice POv/DOF. well done TFS.

Bonsoir Jim
C'est une excellent Prise de vue ! La composition très jolie avec de belles couleurs, grande acuité et détails. Merci pour le partage .
Au revoir et merci ....JP

Hi Jim,
It looks upto some extent similar to asiatic bloodtail. And I don't know its exact ID. Sorry for that. The capture is very nice sharp focus and nice composition. But here the focus is a bit soft compared to your last three posts of DFlies. Those were simply brilliant. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Superbe, les détails sont fantastiques et clairs, d'une très grande netteté et d'une grande justesse.

Hello Jim,
The head, thorax, and near wing are well focused and detailed, great POV. Very good color and use of ambient light, nice shine off dem wings too :)
Well done.

Hola Jim,
Preciosa imagen de bellos colores y gran definición, excelente la luminosidad, saludos
