[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This has got to be the most beautiful dragon fly that I have seen to date. The colors of the metallic body are amazing in the light and the wings shimmer with streaks of gold. It was hard work chasing this illusive guy as it just did not let me get close enough. But with some patience I manage to get him in an isolated Bg setting and took the shot. Any comments welcome and thanks for all your positive input.

Hi Dilshan
Wonderful shot captured with beautiful light and lovely saturated colors with great vibrancy..glossy look on its body!
Best Wishes

Very nice capture of this dragonfly. Good use of the dof to isolate your subject. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

An exceptionally well taken macro capture from a dragonfly against a smooth green BG, Dilshan!

Great focus on its eyes and its perfect placement in a natural frame, make this work so special.
The DOF is well maintained and clarity is amazing.
Great work as usual.

Thanks and regards,

Great shot Dilshan. The color and sharp detail is amazing. Good lighting, nice dof and a fantastic capture. Well done. TFS, Lori
