Award Shortlist   


By Cobbage
My cat came up to me carrying this in her mouth! You might be able to see the damage on its tail (it's slightly squashed). I rescued him and placed him on a plant. I was expecting him to fly away quickly however he stayed there for about 10-15 mins without moving so there was plenty of time for some photos. For this photo I used the flash with my home made diffuser thingy majiggy. My dad ran it through lightroom and made some enhancements. Hope you like it, and as always, advice and comments are appreciated Smile

A beautiful Broad-bodied Chaser (female, the males are blue). You've caught it brilliantly, I love the colours and details! Smile

(My Taffy has been known to bring in the occasional Dragonfly, usually they can be set free again!)
