Love how they come up with such cool names for the dragonflies, me not
being a fan of the latin name, which I will not even mention here.
Had some wide view shots which I might have posted, but this one
was of more interest to me, as I use high iso which I seldom like to
use becos of noise issues. Here for this male Grenadier I was trying to get a higher shutter speed without causing a dark bg.

90D, 180Canon,  Aperture-Priority AE
1/160
f13
EV -2/3
ISO Speed 1000
Flash Exposure Compensation -1 2/3
AF Mode Manual focusing, handhold,
image slight crop, some sections smoothened out to reduce noise.

More experimental fun for me. Comments welcome and hope its a good view.

Your choice of perspective and crop work perfectly for me Darren! Excellent intimate view. Well done!

Smashing image Darren. Don't worry about that lovely name. Some bright spark will fix that in the name of "insect rights issues" etc...LOL

Awesome close up!

Nice details, neat species with the red tail. Didn’t notice any noise.
