Lovely dof, exposure and lighting for this lovely capture of a Widow Skimmer Dragonfly! The background nicely compliments the shades of the dragonfly. : )
Thanks Michael and Sandy, this was one of those very nice surprises you get as a photographer as I’m sure you know. I saw this dragonfly in my yard one day while I was looking for butterflies and birds to photograph. At the time I thought ~ Oh what the heck I’ll just snap one or two quick shots and move on.

Needless to say ~ I am now happy to take photos of any dragonflies that decide to come my way…
Fantastic image, Bron!
