I do appreciate all the helpful comments. As to how I took this photograph, I had to be very still and creep very slowly. At one point I can distinctly remember a definate neck & arm pain as I was stretching my camera out as far as I could reach. Evidentally, this dragonfly was determined to be in that particular spot as it didn't move. As for color saturation, it is as from the lens. I agree on the under-exposure comment and I did my best to correct this without changing the color contrast.

Darn, you just missed out on my expected top-10. But then again 6,9 would usually land you within the top-5! It's an incredible shot, keep them coming!

the brightness of the green and the detail on the bug do it for me..those wings! unreal focus, teeny tiny bit soft but still detailed. Very well done! I just bumped this to a 10. :)

Good macro. Very sharp and crisp. Looks like it might be just a little underexposed. Aside from that, this is a great shot.

Only one minor problem with this photo, the head is just a little out of focus. Otherwise it would be a 10.

wonderful shot. great detail and color. i might have boosted the saturation a bit to bring the color out a bit more, but the detail is amazing.

What an amazing animal! And all these colors are really great. It's incredible to see the colors come through the wings. This one should be top-10! Good luck and thanks for a beautiful photo! - 10

So detailed and sharp. You've created a mastrpiece here! There is nothing to criticize, except maybe that the main subject is very centered - 10.
