|I love the way dragonflies look. I think they are a very special insect. It is said that if you see them they are a reminder to think positive. |
This is from wiki:
The Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis) is a dragonfly of the skimmer family. It is common and widely distributed in the United States.
Male on a Lotus Leaf
Mature males develop a bluish-white pruinescence on the back of the abdomen and, in western individuals, on the thorax. They display this pruinescence to other males as a threat while defending territories at the edge of the water.
Mature male with blue-white abdomen and thorax
Although the species name longipennis means "long wings", the wings are not particularly long. Females do, however, have a short abdomen that makes the wings look longer in comparison.

Hi Elena! I really like this dragonfly, It has at least 5 different colors on its body! I would like to have this species here in Spain! Great sharpness on its head and torax, great compositon and background. Thank you for sharing it and congratulation. Saludos.

Good horizontal framing and quite good sharpness for this Dragonfly-picture. You also put the focus perfectly on the eye. Your point of view didn't allow sharpness on the whole body, but I don't mind the way you show it. The best position is the lateral view, but I like also something different from time to time.
