Nicely captured macro and the style is very much mastered well to show BG blur and bokeh for f/13. Well done.

Excellent composition with the skimmer and the twig on a parallel diagonal. Good dof.
I love the flimsy beauty of the wings.

Excellent detail and colors with wonderful dof. Thanks for the note, as well.
Congratulatiosn, very well done, my friend, and welcome back.
Like sunsets, flowers, and indeed human models, dragonflies are one of those often-photographed subjects on TrekLens. That's fine because they are often lovely to look at, but it also sets a very high standard because the best are truly astounding.
This shot is ok ... in truth I think it's lacking the sharpness on the body. The light is ok although the colours feel a little subdued. Your background bokeh is perfect.
I've rarely photographed insects because it's so hard to get right ... I think this is ok but I look forward to seeing better from you next time.

i like the prominent green/greenish tone here. perhaps not as sharp as some of your other d'fly images but the presentation here is just lovely.

Beautifully captured ... the beauty of nature gets better to look at closeup range. I like the clarity of details and sharpness of the image. Well captured and composed! tfs

Great macro with a great detail in a very well done diffuse background;
Asalamualaikum Bro Jusni,
Beautiful view and angle of this shot..Honestly this is really nice composition..but i'm not so sure about the lighting...The sharpness works well and also the BG very nice with cream bokeh..
I try to make a WS for this picture..just for sharing bro..I hope you dont mind.

I always like your well-written informative notes attaching your photos. Your galleryis what I and Agoes always talk about when we are trying to ID any of our nature subjects. In fact I have a shot of this d'fly but couldn't make a post due to unknown ID.
Well captured d'fly against a nicely muted harmonious green background.

Execellent details as always, and very soothing colours. It has also been captured at a wonderful moment.

A fine composition, and the macro work is well done!
The point of view leveling the insect works well, and the spot on DoF isolates the subject well...

Sorry for the delay to answer your kind words.
I first thought of an after-love scene because the branch can be mistook for a female; see her two eyes half closed and her smile!!!

All black and green and a tiny bit of blue on the head of the dragon fly.
It looks great, despite the resizing down to 800 I can still see littly tiny hairs on both the fly and the branch.
Lovely job, nothing to improve here.

A very strange and beautifully coloured-paterned skimmer Jusni.
You captured it perfectly from lateral POV.
