Hello Benyamin,

This is one from the better macro shots, fine detailed on the head, also lovely colours and good light. Very well done!

Best regards,

Salam Ben,
In my country this bugs have not appeared yet. We have to wait 1-2 months for seing dragonflies. You have captured it very well my dear friend. It looks great. Bravo and TFS.

Remarquable gros plan.
Bonne journée.

Oh dear... this looks really really freaky.. clear and sharp.. but freaky.. i cannot imagine having one of these fly up to my face and stare me in the eyes like this one is doing now.

Excellent job!

Hi Ben.
Very expressive close-up with interesting upper POV and perfect details of the dragonfly head. I see (if I am not wrong) you have not used flash. Interesting illumination of the insect and perfect lightened BG. I welcome your experiments with technique of macro shooting, including exposure parameters. My compliments and best regards.
