Cool, 1000mm macro! :) Sweet detail and background. I wish they would land on prettier perches. It looks like you could have gone with a bit more DOF and still maintained a good background and got the rest of those wings in focus. Minor nit but would have been cool to try it.

I like it a lot. Good narrow crop for comp, too. I also enjoy how the BG transitions from cool to warm. DOF works for me, and of course the light angle is just right.

For some reason the composition does not sit well with me, but everything else does.

I like this a lot, Al!
Composition works for me and the background colors do a great job of complimenting
the subject.
Your selected crop also highlights the long slender body of the Dfly.

I like the comp a lot. I'll have to try this method soon - 1000mm should give a good working distance! The BG is wonderful here.

I also like how the BG colors compliment the image, nicely done 1000mm man.

Hi Al, Out of all the excellent Dragonfly images displayed here I think this takes the cake!!! Superb composition and I just love the arrangement of the 4 wings. Wow that 500mm sure softens the BG. Many congrats!
