Great in-flight capture of a dragonfly! Pretty hard to achieve!

Very good, I know how hard it is to catch these little guys.

I love these insect images! Super-duper capture. Love how you can see the details of his wings. Wonderful detail and color.

Very impressive shot! I don't think I've ever seen a shot of a dragonfly in flight. I love the focus on the entire head and body, and the depth of field.

That's amazing stop action. The bokeh is heavenly. Nice shot. Maybe a touch of a shoehorn into a Stones song, but I can go with it. ;~D

Clever. Nice shot, too. Mid-flight dragonflies in focus has always been something I wanted to accomplish, which I have now, though nothing as nice as this. Problem with these is that they always want their back to the sun so their faces are always dark and difficult to see (with basic editing, anyways). Very good capture.

Great job freezing the motion on this guy. Some strategic cropping would remove the white hot spots on the right and bring its flying direction INTO the shot.
