Another dragonfly from my favorite dragonfly spot. I think they like it here because there's plenty of open sunlight. And plenty of tall weeds providing good perches.

This guy would fly off and back to this same place. I was just patient and waited for his return.

I sharpened it a little but not much.

Hi Reid,

Nice macro of this dragonfly with the amazing wing span. Good details - I like the legs and face. Nice natural colors and a fantastic pose.

Hello Reid,
Thanks for posting this beauty!! The overall blue colour is really wonderful and focus on the eyes excellent. I love the diagonal wings following the lines of the seed head. Lovely soft green background too. Very fine composition!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

You're really good at the dragonflies!!!
Ditto on what the others said about sharpness and composition. Your work is getting better and better!
