Many shots around this dragon.
Once again perfect, Harm.
This is a beautiful serie of this impressing dragonfly, I enjoy it very much, thanks

Big eyes! Its face takes a caricatural form when taken so close! I just think I would have added a bit more contrast, but it's very nice like this.

TFS, Harm.

Hola Harm: it is a very good macro, with natural colors beautifully cocktails. The model is charming and a little serious, perhaps he doesn't like the cameras, but she poses very well. Excelenten clarity and illumination. Una gran favorita. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*
