easy peasy

I don't know why I put this off until the last day. *sigh*

The hard part was getting him to land near me by the pond and smile. :D

ETA: I checked after midnight, and saw that I had another day.

*rolleyes*

BRILLIANT .. this is beautiful ..
you have totally nailed the details on the dragonfly and then that background .. !!! ... STUNNING .. !! ..
congrats on such a gorgeous photo .. and getting a ribbon ..
like i said to janine .. you should print this and hang it in your house ..
insects need more exposure . lol .. unintended pun .. which are often the best .. !! .. <3

Great close up. I don't know how you were able to get so close without it flying away. Were you dressed up like a dragonfly?

Love the composition and that nicely complementary background. The near eye looks just slightly soft to my eye, but the mouth and legs are nice and sharp.
