It seems I do quite well with dragonfly pictures in challenges, so here's another. It's of a kind that I don't recall seeing before.

Post Challenge: Well, there you go. Maybe I should try to shoe-horn a dragonfly photo into every challenge...

Oh WOW!!!!!!! This is beyond incredible. I can not get over what beautiful macro this is. This is a great score and finish -- but its hard to believe it wasn't one of the top 3.

Congratulations on perfection in a photo like this! Oh, and 11th place is nice too :)

I have seen a lot of dragonfly photos in this challenge - but this one stands out somehow (for me). I admire the way the subject stood out from a green monochromatic background.

Beautiful color, though the dragonfly's body & the stalk are more center of attention because of the wings' translucency.

Excellent detail and bokeh. I'm afraid all of us are going to get smeared because there are so many dragonflies. Yours is really beautiful.
