[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was ambivalent about posting this image. A list of "I should have done this and that" raced through my head. I decided to post it anyway because it reminded me of the fun time I had when I woke up one day while vacationing in the Philippines and decided to search for dragonflies and damselflies. I used to chase these insects as a young boy growing up in the country.

Hi Danilo,
Wonderful macro and amazing colors and detail!

Hello Danilo,
Lovely details in the insect and the tight framing adds dynamics!
And Bohol sound like a nice idea now in the darkest and coldest time of the year...

Hi dear friend,
a dragonfly it's always somethig to admire, but... it's quite difficult to capture it. You did quite a good job.
Nice details and tones.
Well done!
Best wishes,

I am so glad you decided to post it after all Danilo, it is just super. The transparency of the winds is awesome and the detail is amazing. I am not sure how you could have made it better. Beautiful colour. Well done.

Nice macro, Danilo. Yes, sometimes we hesitate before posting, but after all, we want to learn something from the feedback. I also chased these insects as a child and sometimes play with them by tying them with sewing thread. And it was fun, even though animal rights activists will want to punish me for it!

Hi Danilo,
A wonderful macro shot of the butterfly, with excellent sharpness. Good colour & tight framing.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
