Good to see that at least some wildlife is returnng to Thursley Common. I like this shot of what I beleive may be a Common Darter. DoF is pretty good considering you used a 300mm lens. I like the composition and the OOF charcoal in the bg at least makes for a nice backdrop. Well done and thanks for sharing.

Hi Emma, nice shot. The composition is good and all round decent stuff. I'd be tempted to clone out the bright spot in the bottom right.
It's a male common darter Sympetrum striolatum

Excellent D-Fly shot. I like the shallow DOF and the good detail on the length of it's body. Job well done,

Nice macro work, Emma. I think the DoF is perfect -- we really need a clear focus on the eyes, body, and to show the details in the wing, and that's what you've captured. The slight roll off in focus is actually a bit of a plus for me, it's a bit of information on the 3D nature of the shot, plus I really like the blur in the bg.

Excellent sharp composition against the beautiful background colour.
Making a break from landscapes? :)
Great shot, especially considering that it was taken at 300mm. Excellent POV, lovely colors but especially superb light. The charcoal in the BG really brings out the nice colors of the subject.
Very well done!
Bravo and TFS

As a Landscape lover, I really hope you will have broadband again really soon. Not that I don't like this photo, but I want to see more of beautiful Scotland. This is a lovely close up, and the details and colors look perfect. The OOF BG is perfect, and almost looks like one of those studio BG's I think it is the charcoal that gave it this pattern and colors.

very well captured dragon, the details and the sharpness is very good. Very nice POV and very well composed with a nice OOF bg that shows of the subject very well.
Un agradable macro con buen DOF y POV que muestra correctamente al insecto sobre su percha.
El trasfondo es adecuado y bien obtenido, así como el encuadre... sólo criticaría una leve sobre exposición, aunque informas que no has disparado el flash.
Pleasant macro with good DOF and POV that it shows correctly to the insect on their hanger.
The background is adequate and well obtained, as well as the framing... only I would criticize a light over exposed, although you inform that you have not shot the flash.
