a good n-flight shot of a beautiful dragonfly, the pose is a bit unusual for a in-flight but it's nice.
You manage to get it pretty sharp with fine details.
The DF standout well from the nice BG.
Have a nice weekend

Hi Ernie and nice to meet you
I took a look over you gallery here and, being away from TN these past few weeks, i see that i've missed a lot of wonderful postings from you. Congratulations for them!
This is a stunning in-flight of a dragonfly here, presenting it in one interesting pose :)
The quality of the details is amazing and the sharpness of the focused textures is gorgeous.
The colors are also vibrant and stand very nicely out, even from the thumbnail. The light and exposure were well controlled, while the DOF is good, but perhaps a bit deeper one wouldn't hurt either (i know it would slow your shutter speed, so...)
In regards to the subject, i would dare to say it's a species from the Aeshna genus, but being taken quite far away from my country, i'm not bold enough to be 100% sure :( Sorry.
Anyway, i appreciate you contribution here - both your pictures and your very interesting and informative notes.
Bravo and thanks for sharing!

foto veramente unica e magnifica, sia per i colori, vividi e caldi che per l'incredibile posizione in volo di questa spelndida libellula.
