Female Broad-bodied Chaser Libellula depressa

Taken in my back garden yesterday.... the head is soft... I know!! But its my first Dragonfly photo, and I was quite pleased with it. Next time I'll use a different aperture.

ISO 400
Shutter speed 1/250

Part desaturated in Elements... don't worry.... it's a phase I'm going through!!

Super shot, fantastic detail, and your 'desaturation phase' really adds impact.

Quite interesting in part mono and part colour. It seems to present rather well. Good colours and detail in the body and wings.
