[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a red Dragonfly. I found him at a small pond near my village. there were a lot of different dragonflies and damselflies there, and also some frogs, but this one caught my attention with its bright color.

It was very difficult to get a correct shot of him, as he was always moving. He rested some seconds only on this branch, then flew away, rested somewhere else for some seconds, flew away again, and so on. I had to be very quick and that's why the dragonfly is not really sharp enough.

I hope you will still like the picture !

FABULOUS! I love this! These guys are SO hard to shoot, much less get them in focus! Great shot and colors!

Je vois que le père noël est passé plus vite que tu ne pensais... Ca y est! Tu as eu ton Canon 350D ? En tout cas, bien vu la photo de la libellule. J'ai aussi ma collection de macro avec cette libellule et une autre.

Quelle couleur éclatante pour cette libéllule.
Bravo pour cette suprbe photo.

Tres belle photo prise sur le vif. Bravo.

Hi Valerie,
Good focus on the elusive dragonfly. Clarity is good that one can see the wing details. Good work. Regards,

Bonjour Valerie,
very nice shot, the POV and the details in the dragonflies face are very good. Nice DOF and very well composed.
