Thanks all.

How can you tell it's a dragon fly and not a Damsel fly?

Paul - damsels fold their wings down the body at rest, dragons hold them out at right angles - as here. The body shape is also different.

good detail. i think ti is just a bit soft and i think that the crop is too tight. i think you need some space around the fly.
