Stunning capture! Everything is so clear and the angle shows off the whole insect. The light is magnificent too.

Fantastic photo, and pretty dragonfly!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You have perfectly caught the ethereal quality and the beautiful color both. Your dragon is friendly and you are very patient to have found it when he was holding still enough to be photographed. Just lovely.
