A dragonfly backlit by the setting sun.
I was trying to get a few photos of some wildflowers when these guys showed up.

I love how the wings are in full detail by the sun and the rest of the body is a silhouette, makes it very unique and effective! vTd

This is a stunning shot, the back lighting is brilliant - I love the details in the wings. A little tight on the tip of the tail - but this is still one for the wall!!

Well presented, I would consider maybe applying a soft filter to the shot and give it a dream like quality and to help blend it with the back light. Spot on! Click!!!

It is quite contrasty but the backlighting is very good.
