    I think you nailed it John in terms of focus and exposure, great shot - I take my hat off to you well done.
    I sense you may feel a "but" coming... well it is almost too much for my eyes to focus on, I really am captivated by the droplets on the head and forelegs but the others gradually become almost a distraction as do the OOF wings.
    It is almost too good! I would suggest tone down the wings and thorax droplets concentrate attention on the head.
    I would appreciate your view, don't misunderstand me I think it is excellent I am just wondering if it is possible to improve it!

    Thanks Jonathan. The wings bother me as well on this one. Wanted to see what others had to say. It was quite a chore to get the tripod and everything level this guy was almost right at ground level. I have a couple more i will post.

    Excellent Image. I love the water droplets.

    I hope once I can photograph dragonfly with water droplets.
