6 - Nice colors and clarity. Wish it were bigger (720). That fore wing in a little more focus too, but difficult.

A lovely shot of the small insect, good focus on the wings.

Wow! This really is enchanting! Way to go making a bug (which normally I wouldn't even like a photo of) look graceful and beautiful! Everything in this photo compliments each other. The soft blues in just the right place. The pretty pink flowers, the position of his delicate wings. Very enchanting indeed :)

One of the nicer photos of dragonflies. Dragonflies are one of the few not-afraid-of-humans, settle-dead-still-for-minutes-at-a-time-while-you-focus insects. That's why there are so many photos of them about. It's the background and depth of field which makes or breaks a dragonfly photo. The colours in your photo make it one of the better ones. 8.

always a favorite of mine, the up close dragonfly. I can't decide on the blue background though...at first it's distracting, but I believe it actually adds to the power of the colors here. well done.

For some reason I really like this one, as it reminds of a fairytale story, or a page out of a book.....
