Hi Josep.
Simply great picture of the fine dragonfly. You have selected aperture value perfectly. All image of the insect are sharpened perfectly and BG is blurred nicely. Pictured scene at whole is fine and composition of the shot as well as framing of the scene are blameless too. Well done and my kind wishes.

Hola Josep,
a beautifully composed picture of the dragonfly with respect to geometry and colours.
Point of view in combination with focus plane are well selected as a prerequisite to achieve
high sharpness of the important parts of the specimen.
Best wishes, Peter

Ciao Josep,
complimenti per questa bellissima 400th immagine; eccellenti POV e DOF, splendida composizione con delle bellissime linee grafiche che risaltano su uno stupendo OOF BG, la definizione è straordinaria e i colori dalle tonalità delicate sono fantastici.

Hi Ignasi
Very nice sharp image. Ilike pastel colors and good contrast. Also prfect blured background Very good job

I am in Valencia now so very best wishes from Spain .-)

HI Josep,

very nice view of this dragonfly.
the ID i think is Orthetrum chrysostigma, never seen that so i'm not 100% sure.

Hi Josep,
A perfectly composed and focussed macro shot of this brown dragonfly. I thinbk it is a female Southern skimmer (Orthethrum brunneum) since it has an expanded ventrally 8th abominal segment.
TFS and cheers,

Hello Josep,

What a good photo with the dragonfly you have made. I like the way colors of the insect blend with those of the background in the strong light. Insect is shown with great sharpness as you have used a very well adapted DOF. It is not only the body of the insect that is shown in great sharpness but also part of the wings.

Thank you for sharing,

Ante todo enhorabuena por tus 400 fotos publicadas, es un buen trabajo sobre todo cuando te tomas las molestias de identificar las especies que es otra tarea encomiable.
La imagen tiene una bonita composición, con buena nitidez y presentada de una forma en la que se aprecian muy bien los detalles, muy buena la iluminación con un bonito fondo, esperamos seguir disfrutando de muchas fotos más, un cordial saludo

Hi Josep

This is very beautiful and delicate. I love the almost pastel colour tones. The light is beautiful and the image is pin sharp. The DOF really helps your dragon stand out and the POV is spot on. Great work

Hello Josep,
Congratulations on reaching 400! This is a very fine capture of this lovely dragonfly in beautiful colours. Excellent DOF and sharpness and I like the background. I'd guess its an immature specimen so hard to ID. A very beautiful composition too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
