A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, the suborder Epiprocta or, in the strict sense, the infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ανισος anisos, "uneven" + πτερος pteros, "wings", because the hindwing is broader than the forewing). It is characterized by large multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong transparent wings, and an elongated body. Dragonflies are among the fastest flying insects in the world. (From Wikipedia)

Another strikingly macro work and all the minute detail so nicely packed together with your exquisite camera works. This process actually strains the eye as i have experienced a long time ago and that's the main reason I skip this subject nowadays. It's perfectly sharp in focus and your long lens at fast speed get this perfectly in shot emphasised by the soft blurry background showing a stunning example of this beautiful creature. Worthy an effort shot, Very well done, Congrats
