A beautiful orange dragonfly on a lotus bulb.
Direct sunlight enhancing highlights and brights and a diagonal composition into the vertical frame.
I really enjoyed shooting dragonflies at the pond, they are great models and return to the same spot again and again so you can set your camera manually.
Thanks for viewing...

I like the mood you captured in this shot, Galder!

Though an unusual POv for this dragonfly shot but overall it works wonderful, especially with the well thought diagonal placement of the bud within a natural frame. The sharpness and POV are excellent.
Well executed!


Hello Galder,

Excellent macro with soft light and contrast.
The colors are very beautiful, POV is great and BG is OK!
Excellent work indeed.

Very nice capture of this dragonfly. I like your pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Great colors. Well done, tfs.

very beautiful. very subtle but dramatic take. a perfect capture of nature.
