An impressive macro of this good looking dragonfly, Behrad.
The view from the top gives a wonderful perspective on the insect in terms of colours and others features on its body.
The blurred BG suits the subject well.

Hi Behrad

Another very beautiful capture from you!
This realyl is a wonderful species and the great thing about this photo is that you managed to capture it on a very nicely toned and somewhat contrasting BG.
This way, the skimmer really stands out wonderfully.
The details here are nice and sharp, the colors charming and well saturated and the lighting impeccable.
Great work!

Bravo and TFS
