Dragonfly in a ray of sunshine

By fotobee  
Tulbagh South Africa

A Dragonfly illuminated in a ray of sunshine. The photography was fairly difficult, and not "Blowing out" the highlights difficult to achieve. Luckily the dragonfly sat fairly still, and I managed to get 3 shots before it flew off. The first shot was very bad, the second better, until I got it just about right on the third. The camera only takes JPEG `s, but still gives good results.

Thank you very much for your lovely UA, ****. This is really appreciated ! Thank you all for the lovely comments, ****, Nezih and Chinga. On looking at the model, there are no weapons lying around ! This is a "Drakkar" after all, and I MUST make swords, pikes and axes to complete it. Does one ever complete a model ?

Have a superb day.

Best regards
Martin
