Apologies for posting this after Roman's shot, just happens to be that time of year.

D3, 300 f/4 with 1.7TC, 1/1000 at F/8 ISO 450.

This is mind blowing image. One of the VERY BEST dragonfly images I have ever seen.
Egg laying moment, the low angle/perspective + that killer reflection makes this image very unique & top-notch.
Love the colour & exposure.
Could you please share some info on lighting & EXIF when you find time ?

One of the finest images of ovipositing I have seen, excellent colours and exposure. The only issue I would consider would be to add a little canvas on the left.

Hey Tim, in most cases you would be just thrilled to get a great shot of the dragonfly itself, but the fact the you also get that great reflection puts it over the top. Congrats on a great shot.:)

Nothing to add to the above. The absolutely best shot of Anax imperator I've ever seen (sorry Roman...), and I've seen quite a lot!

Tim Amazing DF image the reflection sets it apart from most other DF images. Was this shot as a vertical or horizontal.
