Hi Ruby,magnificent dragonfly whit a very original and spectacular wings desing,great capture from a nice pov and spectacular details and colors,i like it! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

This one is a cracker dear Ruby .... yea! Even more ... I can not think for any kind of improvements in a workshop at all....which is no good by and large, ... and the scoring point proves it here. Just look at this phenomenal depth of field, which covers in focus the entire insects with those massive wingspan ....flawless ! In the same time the background is nicely isolated and the diagonal composition brings a sure sign of professionalism ... not good! There is not much work for me here Ruby...in Treknature I mean... let me rather go and bake some cheese pastry! Be happy too my friend!
