Banded Agrion

By JohnoP
Spent all day down by the River Avon trying to get a good shot of one of these - I know it is a common upload but I was pleased with the result, given the level of difficulty trying to get the grips with the new macro 105 lens. Any constructive comments very welcome!

this is very very stunning, the colour is amazing, i'd say your waiting down the river paid off, you have done a really good job of capturing this.
theres nothing wrong at all with this photo, i would say PERFECT.
thanks for sharing

One of the best I have seen for some time. The detail is magnificent (especially in the larger image) Definitely gets my vote!! Keep them coming.

They ain't easy anytime so anyone that gets a shot as good as this gets a thumbs up from me......
P.S. Early evening normally works for me!

Cracking close up shot with some great detail and colour. I'd prefer to see the whole insect personally but this still works to some degree.
