Stunning capture Ken. Good lighting and the posture looks really good.Best, Brat.
What a great beauty you are showing us today.
Wing details are most wonderful while sharpness and lighting are perfect.
The soft background color tones are very pleasing and the pose of the dragonfly is great.
Personally I would have changed composition a little with some more space on top and left hand side and a small crop of the right hand side and bottom, but nevertheless this is a real beauty and a great joy to look at.
Thanks for sharing.

It's so good the sharpness and lighting here.
I like every single detail on the insect, the pattern on its wings and that metallic appearance on the body.
I must say I like most this composition than the proposed one on the workshop.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

Hi Ken, you have an amazing diversity of dragonflies down your way, and this is another beauty. Very nice capture on your part with excellent sharp clarity and colour. You have also very effectively used you depth of field to isolate this dragon and it's branch from its background. I was curious to see how this would look with a squarer format so prepared a workshop, but I see that Harry has done this, and it looks good, so I'll hold off on mine.

Very interesting angle/bend going on with that dragonfly. :) And look at the eye closely - it looks like he's wearing a pair of funky sunglasses or better yet, aviator goggles. ha ha
Wonderful shot and the various workshops are great.

a very nice picture with nice colours and lighting.
Nice to see you used low ISO, the sharpness are very good

Agree with Hrry about the compo but otherwise it's a very good close-up.
