Beautiful detail in the wings. Not bothered much by the background - dof is good, and the dragonfly is nicely separated - and it's in situ, so...

Version two for me just, I think it shows all that lovely detail in the wings off a little more.

Despite it's reluctance to play ball, you have still managed two fine detailed shots, Carol: I'd have been pleased with either of them.

Maybe not the perfect background, Carol, but it's well out of focus and you've manipulated it well. The shape of the insect in v1 is excellent, which just tips it for me. Two fine captures.

Not a Broad-bodied chaser Carol. I think its a female Red-veined Darter.

Nice point of view in both shots.

Awesome detail in these close ups Carol, glad to see that your work is finally being recognised in the form of a well deserved GEA. I think you'd better update the title or the Big O will be picking you up on that!Wink
