    Great shots. It looks like a young female. She has chosen the wrong day to emerge.

    Are these stacked? Crazy detail! Awesome job.
     
  7. Yes, it's a very young female. There were only two who emerged today in my pond.

    The dragon was ready to fly but because of the cool and rainy weather it sat very calm on its stick. Bad day for the dragon, lucky day for me.

    Stacked? No way. Pictures are as they were made. I only corrected levels.
    But thanks to the weather conditions I had all the time to find the perfect angle to make these pics.
     
  8. Beautiful capture! Delicate creature, very nice photography.
     
  9. Beautiful shots, Jan!

    Love the light!
