[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't know the exact name of this species, but I think it belongs to be a Neurothemis sp.
I found this composition very interesting. The challenge was to expose good in spite of an high contrast in the backgroung. I used + 0.7 IL to the automatic value delivered by my camera.

Taken in the valley of Penaourou, Santo Espiritu Island, Vanuatu

Hope you like it.

Hi Emanuel

This is indeed a very very beautiful composition! I really like it, partially because it's not something you see everyday here on TN, and partially because the diagonal line made by the plant and dragonfly looks great!
Also the exposure is impecable in this picture - even though it was quite difficult, you managed it admirably.
The sharpness of the details is impecable, too and all the colors and tones look amazing!
Very well done, my friend!

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Emmanuel,
Il semble que vous etes en position dilemmatic, entre montrer la libellule ou la tige de l'usine sauvage. Grand pour avoir les deux dans une armature simple, mais la composition devient maladroit: la libellule devient loin en bas de cette image.
Cependant, techniquement, c'est une excellente image. Grande acuite, details tres fins, et fond ordonne. Belles couleurs vives.
Merci de le partager.
