nice color good DOF but the focus is off. i'd try sharpening because i think you could significantly enhance the photo

Hello Jim,
what a good close-up with sharpness and details also the pov!
great job

It is an amazing capture and works a tad like visual 'affects' the conscious mind. Soon you shall be seeing scarab beetles in your field.

Very nice closeup!
You snuck this one in on me...Great shot!

Hi Jim,
Great close up, very sharp focus I can see
the hairy boddy the light ply a nice roll,
shining the wings, TFS best regards/Lawhill

Hi Jim,
Great close-up of this still unidentified dragonfly.The details are amazing, especially the tiny hairs on the face and legs. The light is excellent and I think really worked in your advantage making those details really stand out. This is the perfect POV for such a close-up. Great neutral back. My only criticism is ...lots of noise. I think Tom's workshop over-sharpened your image to the point of unnatural. I would like to take a stab at it with my workshop.
Have a good weekend.

Hello Jim,
really spectacular, I don't think that the image needs to be more sharpened, the WSs have too much noise, I think is a question of DOF, in this shot it must only a few mm, and of course the wings are a bit unfocused at the edges, but it is normal, and the accuracy of the particulars of the body are impressive.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Jim,
