Well done !
Mooie foto, alleen jammer dat het een libelle is met donkere kleuren en geen met fel blauw ofzo.
maar wel mooie en vooral scherpe foto.
Ik kijk al uit om die van morgen te zien.

Outstanding macro of this dragonfly. It appears he is on a huge mushroom. Stunning shot.

interesting color on the body. I like your low perspective. If the other mushroom wasn't in the background, you wouldn't be able to tell what the dragonfly's perch is!

@Julie Brown: Yes that's true ! I had a hard time taking this shot as at that time I only had a 18-55 lens... not the best for that kind of captures ;) But the dragonfly wasn't scared at all, or was it the smell of the mushroom who kept him there... who knows ! Thanks a lot for your comment Julie, have a nice day :)

Pavan Kaul from Mumbai, India
