Nice capture with good detail and color...After looking at the "OdonataCentral" web site to identify my dragonfly, I leaned that what I had previously thought to be the abdomen was actually the thorax...I was trying to identify dragonflies through references to marking on their abdomens thinking they they should be on the thorax...Thanks for the web site, I think I will have better luck identifying dragonflies now...The BG looks really nice, progressivly going from light to dark...It makes the colors of the perch and dragonfly really stand out...Well done...TFS

An excellent capture of this dragonfly. - and very informative notes. The positions of the Skimmer and the branch are in good symmetry making a wonderful composition. The background is superb in the shading.

You have shown us some exquisite dragonflies and this is one of them. Very sharp image with lovely colours and fine focus. The smooth BG presents a nice contrast and the subjects stnd out well, in fact the lighting presents a glow. Excellent POV and DOF and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Another great dragonfly! I don't think I've ever seen one even close to this color. Excellent background. The texture and detail of his perch even adds interest. Very well done. Reid
