Donald, What a beautiful color! I like the composition and the dragonfly stands out against the beautifully blurred background. Very nice!   Posted: 07/08/2021 14:48:17

Beautiful photograph of a dragonfly!
I don't think I've ever seen a red dragon fly before.

A very nice image of a red dragonfly. To my eyes it is tack sharp and the background is well blurred. I really like the complimenting green to the unusual red dragonfly. In my opinion you could crop a little more from the bottom to balance the empty space above the dragonfly and a subtle vignette would darken the green background and provide a nice frame. It is a very nice image. Well done.   Posted: 07/09/2021 14:47:43

Beautiful dragonfly. I find it is difficult to get all four wings in focus partly due to DOF and partly due to movement but you have gotten this one sharp. And those eyes are fantastic!

Great image and the color is incredible!   Posted: 07/11/2021 13:50:03
