[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
A dragonfly is any insect belonging to the order Odonata, the suborder Epiprocta or, in the strict sense, the infraorder Anisoptera. It is characterized by large multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong transparent wings, and an elongated body.

Dragonflies typically eat mosquitoes, midges and other small insects like flies, bees, and butterflies. They are usually found around lakes, ponds, streams, and wetlands because their larvae, known as "nymphs", are aquatic. Dragonflies do not normally bite or sting humans (though they will bite in order to escape, for example, if grasped by the abdomen); in fact, they are valued as a predator that helps control the populations of harmful insects, such as mosquitoes.

Wow! A brilliant picture, Pankaj. I like the way you have captured it perching on top of the bud of a marigold flower.
Good POV and DOF, sharp focus and very pleasing colours.
I like your note too. If I am not too wide off the mark, this dragonfly is a Slender Skimmer -- I guess the same species the picture of which I posted today.
Well done and keep it going, man!

Hi Pankaj
Freezing the action of a dragonfly is not an easy task. You did it perfectly.

Hi Pankaj,
I really love this picture. Those colors are great! I like the DOF you used that makes the dragonfly very detailed and let us see some nice blurred details on the BG. I like this composition too but, just for fun, I have tried a quick WS to see if a less centered composition could improve this very nice picture. Thanks,
