    I tried to do focus bracket, but both insects moved during bracketing, so I could use only 2 images for this stack.

    Canon 7DII + 180/3.5 + tripod
    DPP4, PSCC + Detail extractor
    Cropped bottom part of image.
    Appreciate comments and suggestions.

    Good and sharp, surprised you used detail extractor - it does not look obvious to me.
    the image is unusual in terms of composition but I like it,the colours are "gentle" and I also like them. the background is muted and yet shows some detail, this sort of approach is appealing more and more to me.

    Man this is so cool to look at. Something about it seems off, and I don't know what it is exactly. I think it might be the angle of the prominent water drop which is so counter to the rest of it. It, in itself, is fun to look at. I LOVE the eyes behind the blade. It's really too bad they moved and you couldn't get more in the stack. If this was tack sharp from front to back like other work you've posted here, it would be a amazing!

    Love that damsel behind the grass. Nice water drop as well. Like the square crop. Colors look good.

    How great this capture is, Ravi. At first glance I thought it was a Damselfly landing on a larger fly. Love the eyes on either side of grass blade.
