Excellent detail on this gorgeous dragonfly, Yves. Your focus was spot on and he stands out beautifully here against the contrasting tones and textures of the sky and branch. So well done!

Thank you Heather.

Another terrific shot Yves. Very nice lacy detail in the dragon fly wings. I like the angle you captured the dragonfly at. The wings stands out nicely against the soft blue sky.

Description
Walking my regular trail in the marsh I came to a spot where they were tens flying all around me. They are so many at this time of the season because many of them will give their life to raise the new generation of birds. So is life on the planet (except for us)
