Welcome - a great first post, fine composition, and excellent wing and face detail. It's a Blue Dasher.

Welcome to NSN! A very nice first post with an interesting angle of view-I like how the wings frame the head, and how the feet are wrapped around the wood. Nice background as well. Looking forward to more!

Welcome, Ryan!
Classic “pose”, nice detail in front, (where it needs to be), nice light and bg. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Good light,
