great shot with amazing sharpness and details.
I like the reflections on the wings a lot.
Nice POV and compo.
Sorry after reading the forum thread on critiques I have to be honest and say I don't like your drangonfly macro, I love it. Sorry I think its brilliant, so sorry I have nothing negative to say, thanks for sharing your talents my young friend.
PS I am not fishing for points

a perfect visual of this Libellula quadrimaculata with an excellent definition of details and above all the light in
the wings that make them similar to a mosaic

A extraordinary good picture, Joe!! And remarcably beautiful. I like every tiny sharp detail even the little hairs in its body. The light in its wings makes it something special. I love it.
Thank you very much for sharing.

I am enjoying the variety in your gallery collection. You are mastering such a good range of techniques. I feel I should be more adventuresome! This is really lovely; sharp with good saturation and simplicity of composition.

Another perfect capture Joe.
Tack sharp as usual and perfect exposure.
I really can't fault this at all.
Wish I could take macros as clear as this.

Your way too good Joey...I think we need to make a JN..Joey Nature:-) This is just another superior example of all your talents which you have put to good uses...some have said when given lemons, make lemonade...so while all of us have "our cross to bear", whether it is illness in biology or mental...we adopt our lives by putting those worries and fears into our artistic side. Good show joey!

You set very high standards for an avid dragonfly enthusiast like me, Joe.
This image is the last word in terms of true representation of wild life through photography.
Thanks and keep it up!

Joe....how could you keep this one in your archives until now?!?
What a gem! This is really a flawless dragonfly shot!
EVERYTHING here is in perfect focus - from the tip of its tail to the tip of every wing.
This being a freshly emerged specimen, the clearness of its wings is enhanced but that makes it even more charming and attractive.
The DOF is also great for the BG - which is wonderfully blurred and makes thee subject appear possibly more beautiful (if possible :))
The classic composition works great, the light is so well filtered and diffused and therefore all the colors are equally magnificent.
A true masterpiece!
BRAVO and TFS
