this is another photograph of the same dragonfly that i considered putting in the challenge ..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_603713.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_603713.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

i'm glad i went with the dragonfly and not the cicada shells or spider which i also considered .. dragonflies are so much prettier !!..

i believe this dragonfly is a Tau Emerald ..

Oh roz ... you have such a wonderful portfolio to peruse ... but this is one of your challenge photos that I think was quite underscored ... If this is not worth a 7 ... methinks I will never get a 7+

What a superb macro. Colour, focus, leading lines, bokeh, crispness, framing, composition ...

Roz, many congrats on the high finish. This is a wonderful shot. I love the fact that it is away from your 'normal' style. So delicate and such vibrant colours. Great bokeh and a super leading line

Congrats on a top ten, Roz! Is this a dragonfly from the 60's? Jerry Garcia reincarnate? :)

Beautiful macro shot. I really like the DOF and how you composed this shot. I think the ligthing is just a tad strong on the dragonfly IMO. I think you may have lost a little detail due to it. But the colors are beautiful and the sharpness and clarity are right on. Nice work. 9
