    Found this damselfly trying to get rid of the water drop by moving its tail up and down. Eventually got rid of it and flew away.

    Canon 7dII + 180/3,5
    f/11. 1/125, ISO 800
    DPP4, PSCC, Nik TC/DE, about 40% cropped out.

    Appreciate comments and critiques.

    I really like this image I also appreciate the narrative. The colours look rather cold to me, perhaps I am wrong but it looks rather blue, I attach an edit for your consideration, you will be able to say which is nearer to reality

    Thanks Jonathan for working on it. It would have looked like that if the light was shining directly on damselfly. The actual colors are somewhere in-between. the damselfly was in the shadow with a bright background, so it looks a little cold. The actual color of the damselfly was gray with a hint of blue. I am reposting with what I think the actual color of the damselfly.

    The repost looks great, Ravi! An interesting subject - made more so by all the water droplets. Good sharpness throughout, plus nice light, comp, and background!

    Nice dew drops on this guy. Nice perch with a killer background as well.
