Hi. So there I was shooting my uncle fishing and a beautiful dragonfly landed very close to me. So... here is the shot (C&C more than welcomed).

You had better be careful shooting these. You will become addicted and need expensive macro lenses, telephotos, extension tubes, tripods and all kinds of stuff:biggrin::biggrin:. Seriously, they are a lot of fun to shoot. Looks like you were very close to this one. There may be a little camera movement or slightly out of focus, but a pretty good start. Thanks for sharing your image, and keep shooting.

Very nice shot of the Orthetrum cancellatum. The are very shy and difficult to catch. They often perch horizontally on some material that reflects the heat.
