    Nice and sharp with good detail on the dragonfly. Not a fan of the vegetation on the left. Background is nice.

    Nice behavioral image of ovipositing. Good details on the dragonfly. I initially thought the vegetation was a distraction, but after looking at it a few times, I think it helps fame the dragonfly.

    Thanks John and Ravi, I appreciate you comments and feedback, the original image is 4:3 format I made this 3:2. i see where you are coming from but I kind of liked the grass and the knapweed plant, I thought it was a little bit of environment that added, equally I ensured to include the four moss stems on the RHS.
