Common Darter

By Philh04
A Common Darter over our pond this morning, I wasn't happy with the background so, using the adjustment brush in Lightroom CC I reduced the clarity and saturation, which makes the background more acceptable and helps the dragonfly stand out.

Canon EOS 1D Mark IV, 100 to 400 f4.5 - f5.6 Mark II (an excellent close up lens with its great MFD), handheld, ISO200 1/800 @ f8, processed in Lightroom CC, finished in Photoshop CC.
