    Very nice. Sharpness excellent, good contrasts and colours

    Lots of bugs in this challenge, but this stands out for the detail as well as for the nature documentary aspect. Good use of depth of field, too. In my first draft of favorites (top 15 or so).

    this one is in my top ten, simply because i took some pics of these guys myself and know how hard it is to get a nice and sharp picture - their eyes seem to have motion sensors, if you come too close, they are gone :-)
also a nice picture (photographically), especially the one in the upper left corner is really nice and sharp, good composition, too. i actually think the background is not too bad - itīs their environment, so it fits; plus you blurred it out nicely. good luck!

    Harmonic union. Great capture and good detail. Like you said a darker background would have accentuated the couple.

    Excellent capture, great composition and colourful, detailed subjects. I think you are right in your comments about the background but you have to shoot when the opportunity presents. Well done, TT.

    I'm afraid to ask what dance position they are assuming but I can say that it is a great capture. Focus and Depth of field are outstanding. Composition outstanding. High on my llist.

    Great composition. The focus is on the Damselfly and the background doesn't bother me a bit. The Damselflies stand out regardless. Neat capture.
