Have not been shooting much. But decided to reboot my activities a little.
Here's a cropped photo of a dragonfly in late morning. It was flitting about so used a handhold approach.
90D, 180Canon macro, 1/200, f6.3., Canon flash with diffuser.
Comments welccomed.

Excellent details - especially for a hand-held image with a 180mm lens.
