Chanced upon this dragonfly in a local park. Adopted a flash approach with the bg a white canvas showing up as greyish. But because the dragon has this saturated colour, it stands out from the somewhat drab bg.

Hope its a nice view and comments welcomed.

1/200, f11. 90D, 180 Canon, Flash ETTL -2/3 diffused, slight crop.

Excellent capture of a beautiful species. The image has a nice three-dimensional quality.

Beautiful photograph of a stunning dragonfly. Pin sharp, with lovely colours which pop against the muted background.
