Not only on taking your first dragonfly, but taking such a fine shot of it!
This Flame Skimmer is super sharp and the colours look great and natural in a pleasing composition against a contrasting OOF natural BG.
Well done and TFS!

Incredible insect with extreme colors. Very sharp details and the background is well choosen.
Hi Jane,i hope that this will be not the next dinner of your birds...ehhe...what a beautifull close-up,a great and unusual point of view and a impressive sharpness,i think that the red is not hard and warm like in the reality but i don't know this subspecie and maybe the colors are like in your pic.Thanks for this different pic,have a nice day,LUCIANO

A very beautiful dragonfly photo.I really like the details and colors of your subject here as well as your spot-on exopsure and management.
The DOF is also very very good and the BG it gave you is wonderful and in very good contrast with this Flame Skimmer.Best regards Siggi

Nice capture I saw my first one 2 week ago but I did not have a chance at it.Excellent work good POV and sharp image with lovely natural colors.
Great to see you managed to get a fine macro of this beautiful Flame Skimmer. Love the side angle view and wonderful detail along with the vivid red coloration. Those summer rains must have done some good in order for you to have these guys around in your area. Well Done!!

Thank you for showing this beautiful insect. I have not seen one before, and my eyes are definitely not good enough to see all the details, which you superbly present in this image!
The colours are stunning - and besides the thin spikes on the legs - I find the oddly shaped eye also very interesting!
Talking of interesting, you put a lot of work into researching your notes and present them well.
I thank you also for visiting my portfolio and your kind words about the Saltlick!
Have a nice week-end
Warm Greetings, Spring is on the way here

Great image for your first dragonfly. At first I thought man would he stick out, then I remembered Arizona, red rock, blue skies. Wonderful job my friend.
