Very beautiful female dragon you caught there.
Sharp macro work. Very nice bg, complimenting the subject colour very well.

A very nice shot of this skimmer!
I really like the delicate composition here - with only a twig and the dragonfly and nothing else in the frame to take away the attention.
The BG is simply lovely - very well blurred and nicely colored.
The details on the dkimmer are great and sharp and the DOF is very nice - although just a bit bigger wouldn't have hurt.
Very well exposed and composed anyway.
Bravo and TFS

Excellent shot at this slender skimmer. The diagonal stick makes good perspective. Superb sharpness and details against the clear background. Well done.

It's been a while since I saw your postings!
This is an excellent capture of a species of Skimmer. Fine sharpness and set in anexcellent composition with great bokeh BG.
I don't think this is O. caledonicum though, as O caledonicum is found in Australia and as west as Bali.
I hope someone can give you the correct ID,

Very good capture. It might have profited from a little tighter crop though. Other than that - good job! Cheers, Klaus

Great close-up. Despite the wind you managed to crate a crisp image of the beautiful insect and attractive scene at whole. Amazing pleasant light colour palette and brilliant composition and POV. Well done and TFS.

I like the empty composition and the wonderful details in the skimmer. The color of the BG is ofcourse amazing and helps to emphazise the colors of the insect. Maybe a bit hot on the lighting, but surely not too distracting.
