[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Kind of dragonflies of variety were able to be seen in various places in this summer. Red dragonfly, blue dragonfly, yellow dragonfly, and black dragonfly, etc. The dragonfly was able to see well near the bog. When not flying, a certain dragonfly stopped in the paling and trees and saw stopping on ground. And a certain dragonfly stopped at rock. This photograph is the one that it was taken to stop on the leaf by chance when taking a turn in the parkt though it leaves in summer, and autumn is received. This is taken in the afternoon when sunlight is strong.

- Noise reduction
- The chroma is increased a little

Hello Mikio!,

Very good capture of Red dragonfly in bright overhead lighting.
Do you know the species name? Probably Orthetrum sp.

Hi Mikio.
a lovely composition of the well lighted dragonfly. The colours are fine, and the shot would be superbs if the compound eyes are brillianlty sharp.
A nice presentation with blurry background.
