************************************************

A dragonfly is any insect belonging to the order Odonata,the suborder Epiprocta or,in the strict sense,the infraorder Anisoptera. It is characterized by large multifaceted eyes,two pairs of strong transparent wings,and an elongated body.
Dragonflies typically eat mosquitoes,midges and other small insects like flies,bees,and butterflies.They are usually found around lakes,ponds,streams,and wetlands because their larvae,known as "nymphs",are aquatic.Dragonflies do not normally bite or sting humans(though they will bite in order to escape,for example,if grasped by the abdomen);in fact,they are valued as a predator that helps control the populations of harmful insects,such as mosquitoes.It is because of this that dragonflies are sometimes called "mosquito hawks" in North America.

Hi Piotr,
Superb macro! Excellent DOF and acuity on the wings. I like the blurred background and colors! Bravo! Annie

ciao Piotr

perfect taken!

Hello Piotr,

Very sharp image. Nice POV.
Tail of the main subject is bit blurred. Would it be good if you took the picture from right side, so leaving thorn at the tail at left, giving better zoom on the subject? But this fly doesn't stay longer at the same place, giving very less time to shoot. TFS!!

Hi Piotr,
Wow, it is not easy to photograph so well those diaphanous wings. We achieve it with a pertinent use of a narrow deep of field. Bravo ! Very sharp details too. The contrast between the fragility of he dragonfly and the spine of the tree under it is special. Good work,
Ivan

Excellent shot Piotr. Great detail and right moment. Well composed with blurred BG.
