Double-striped Bluet

Enallagma basidens

Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park

Long time no post!  I've recently gotten more interested in Odes, and boy do they have them here in S. TX - even in the middle of winter!  Although common, this species was new to me, and I was happy to get this shot of a "lifer".

100-400 4.5-5.6 II (@400mm)
1/320, f/13
iso 800
Eval -.33
BIG crop

Comments and suggestions always welcome.
Good light,

I really like this- the muted reflection, and the glow in the water. A "must click" to see the nice details.
