Dragonfly 3

I have not taken photos of butterflies and dragonflies for a while due to the rain. Yesterday afternoon the rain stopped long enough to take this photo.
This is a beautiful one Lee-Ann, I've never captured this one with the dark wings. He's so golden!

@steampowered thanks for all great comments. Paul I dont consider this a macro shot as a few people have pointed out as I dont own a macro lens. I used a 75-300mm lens, zoom in, capture, then I cropped on my computer...so I dont get really that close..if I do get too close I cant focus properly,

Amazing shot!

Cool composition. Nice job in editing... and I like the vignette around the edges here. Reallyr eally nice complementing colors in the background.

Don't worry about the grain or crispness on this. There is a slight dreamy hazy quality to it. And the contrast patterns on the insect are so strong that it becomes the subject itself I think more than the actual insect. To me that is a good thing.

FAV from me.

@adambralston thanks Adam for your detailed & great comments..I really look forward to them. Im slowly learning to edit photos...yeah I wanted the wings to stand out a bit to show the patterns in it. Thank you for the fav :-)

@leestevo It's a great photo. I hope my comments are helpful, and not annoying. It's just my opinion after all. Always feel free to tell me I am completely wrong, or to go stuff myself. :) Otherwise, I'll keep commenting from time to time. Especially when I love a photo, I'll comment. Or, when I see the total potential in the shot and it just BARELY missed for me.. I'll say why. :)
