You have a unique and quite different view from your eye to mine. Only a couple others do it...something about the color which makes for an unusual blending of sorts...almost changing the pallet completely. Very nice still capture Jim.

Splendid shot of this gorgeous looking dragonfly. Lovely colours and sharp details. Superb lighting and you have captured a fabulous pose here. I like the natural environment as BG. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Magnifiques détails et superbe composition.
This species is one of Orthemis spp. It could be Orthemis discolor (Orange-bellied Skimmer) or Orthemis ferruginea (Roseate Skimmer). Personally, I think it is Orthemis ferruginea (Roseate Skimmer), immature male.
( FYI, your other photo is named, Blue Dasher-male is actually Blue-form female. and another is named Meadowhawk ?...Skimmer ?...??? is Erythrodiplax berenice (Seaside Dragonlet) female. )
I hope it will help you a bit.
TFS and regards,
