I must say, this a very powerful photograph. The depth of field really stands out, as your subject, the insect is detailed and crisp while the background is blurred. The lighting is also well done and gives proper lighting and shadowing to the insect.

I must also commend you for being able to take this photograph of this insect all together. I know it must have been a pretty difficult shot. Depending on how far you were from the subject.

Overall, I find this to being a really impressive photograph, everything from the lighting to the depth are just splendid. Well done. :)

I'll check your gallery.
I've been taking photos since March, 2012 with a Sony DSC-H55(Compact camera). Is hard get nice photos with a non-SLR camera, but sometimes i got a good shot ;)

What a great capture for a first..congrats..makes me wonder if the filled panel in the wings serves a purpose..eye /edge recognition for flying through tighter areas perhaps..I have a lot of dragonfly images but I dont think I've even noticed it in any of the others..thanks again
