Hi Chi,
As usual, outstanding work from your camera. Beautiful colors and sharp detail in this frame filling composition. Perfect DOF has her standing out well. I think I see a couple dust spots on your sensor though.

Amazing details! Very sharp! The contrast to the unfocused background is also great!
All the best!

Hi Chi,
composition as perfectly well balanced as the Libellula on her seat.
Wonderful capture of transparency, amazing to see the clear details of legs through the wings.
A delightfully rich spectre of colours on the body against a soft and distant BG.
Very beautiful contribution. Thank you!
Best regards,
