    The background, the angle you choosen, the composition, and the cut off wings, all those unable to fully showcase the beauty of the dragonfly.

    One thing is i didn't calibrate my moniter so i don't dare to check using comp. Getting new comp/moniter soon just that don't know when...
    Look at Leong's DF pics. You may get a better idea of how composition can showcase a subject better.

    Some standard way to showcase a dragonfly, just like technical drawing.

    How you get so close without scaring it away? I tried but at most the head only fill up at most 25% of the frame. Anything closer than that cannot focus already...

    I shot them, not for achievement, but more for conservation and intend of protecting them.

    Follow your heart, and shoot what you love.......remember, it is not a job, it is passion, so you really have to follow your heart and shoot it for yourselves, not for praise and not even for friends......but for your heart........

    May i know how shooting them is for conservation and protecting them? Not that i'm doubting you or anything i'm just curious as to how photography can help this beautiful creatures. I really do see insects in a different light now.

    Previously all i view them is creepy crawlies however now whenever i see a bug i will get so excited as though i've never seen a bug before.
