A gorgeous capture, though I think I would have been tempted to crop off the bud on the left (it's off on its own and looks a little 'odd'!). Smile

Nicely composed and clear shot.......but the bud on the left tends to draw your eye away from the main subject which spoils the effect a bit. I think I would clone this out rather than crop it, so as not to spoil the composition.

A beautiful image, Uma with a great depth of field.
I love the impression of effort the dragonfly appears to be putting in to stop the stem from falling over!!SmileSmile

The bud on the left is not really necessary cos the dragonfly and the other bud are beautiful.
