Hi Sergio

All the best

Hi Sergio,
while we wait for warm weather (in June!) you chase Anax. You did a good job withthe nice portrait from an unusual angle. But the dragonfly must have seen you approach it: the dark focal point of the eye almost coincides with your ring flash reflection :-)
Best regards

Hello Sergio,
Very nice macro with outstanding colours and great sharpness.

Caro amico Sergio, Quando si taglia libellule, TN trema! ha ha ha :) ... bravo! ... questo mi fa voglia di uscire a prendere le immagini di libellule! ... buon lavoro! Grazie per la condivisione, saluti, Jesús

Hi Sergio.
Great close-up with fantastic colours, extreme details of the beautiful dragonfly and so impressive leaf (or stem) and may be the best composition and POV. My compliments and kind regards. Well done.
