Hello Friends.
This Ground Skimmer was sitting on a dry leaf. Good light was falling on him. His blue color is inviting me to capture. I have reduced brightness here.

Thanks for viewing. All critiques and comments are welcome.

Regards - Adil.

Hello Adil!

I've never seen dragonfly with such intense blue colours - it looks superb especially on brownish BG. Detailed macro, POV is very good. I bet it was hot day - insect is in typical pose to absorb less heat from sunrays.

Hi Adil
Impressive moment captured
Good shot. Nice macro....good contrast. Good efforts.
Well done..TFS
