Aha, my favourite dragonfly from Australia, Chris!
It is my favourtie because I have found it most cooperative during shooting. It returns to the same perch again and again and allows me to get very close.
Very nice POV. The subject is in sharp focus against, I presume, the sky.
Excellent details and colours.

A superb portrait of a Slender Skimmer with fine technical standard and from a great POV. The greyish bokeh BG is ideal to set it off. Is it a cloudy sky?
This species even occurs on the Island of Rhodes in Europe, one of the few dragons found in both Australia and Europe, though I have never seen it.
TFS this beauty,

La pose y el angulo de vista, asi como la nitidez de la imagen hacen de esta presentacion una joya. Hermoso el fondo difuso y la iluminacion lograda aqui.

Excellent work Chris.
The color, exposure, detail, DOF, POV, and neutral grey BG look very good.

I'd love to see one of these slender dragonflies, they're so beautiful! You've caught it in a fine pose here against a plain background that makes it really stand out. Great sharpness and beautiful colours too.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

This time only a short comment. This is a very nice, sharp and colourful profile of Orthetrum species. I like contrast between insect and BG too :)
Best regards and TFS!
