This is a SPECTACULAR capture, Annette! I love how the sun is shining on his wings.

Your composition here is amazing. VERY PROFESSIONAL! They say beauty and balance are found in the odd numbers. 1, 3, 5, 7, etc...so ONE image with THREE plant tops was a SUPERB choice!

Congratulation on your big BP WIN! -Laura Swan

Got to agree with Laura. And you've got the dragonfly placed at the top intersection of thirds ; right where it
should be! Very unique and the feeling I get from this is one of serenity and calmness. Congrats on the win.

Thank you Rod and Kiki! Sure was exciting to get this shot when I was so new to photography! Heck, I've been snapping images for a long time now and I still get excited to see dragonflies :)

G'day *ANNETTE*!

First my heartiest Aussie congratz for the *EP* and *2nd Place* awards bestowed upon this wonderful Nature photograph.
Your good eye and creativity have taken this dragonfly far above and beyond the usual 'dragon-on-a-stick' shot and made a photographic work of art.
The dragonfly is the main focal point in the scene but with your inclusion of the reed blades you have expanded your vision and as those blades have such artisticly curved strands attached to them you have added an extra dimension to the work.
Very well done indeed!

Annette, I can see why this received gold. It really drew me in. It looks very natural. I like the three stalks. The calm tones make me feel connected. Great job!

Dennis and Phyllis, I was lucky when I got this shot. I think it must have been the most exciting shot I have had to date. I was on a photographic trip with my teacher when I was only 6 months practiced with my camera. My teacher had told me it was near impossible to get a dragonfly, so I had to shoot it. I was on a mission!
