Just 'one' of your many exceptional shots, Chris! Love the vivid green bg and the crop doesn't look 'square' due to your focal point being cropped lower right. And by the way...what's wrong with a square crop? Isn't it just a personal preference? #4619758

A dragonfly rests on an unopened lotus bud, Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens.
I framed the shot so the dragon fly was against a massive lotus leaf, blurred out, to provide the background.
