A bit different picture of dragonfly...

I took the photo in misty morning when everything was covered with dew. The Sun was just rising hence the low and warm light that created sephia colours on the picture.
I wanted to show the drops of water on d'fly head and wings, but because of shallow DOF only head was in focus (I couldn't do anything about it because my camera doesn't allow me to change f-stop). So the wings are blurred, but I think they still look interesting because of the way they are illuminated by the low light.

I didn't know whether or not post this shot, but I like the gloomy mood here and I thought maybe some of you will find it interesting.

Hola Mónica, the captured illumination is very beautiful. When seeing the miniature I imagine a flower in dead nature, but oh surprise: a dragonfly. I like this, this has golden magic and enchantment, an image different from the dragonfly, I have never seen something like that, they are so restless that me not to imagine this. Thank you to share it. I have kept this image in my pc. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*

Excellent mood Monika! Golden-black colours, shinning dew, warm light. Very different and refreshing picture of dragonfly for sure! I'm very glad that you've posted this beauty!

Hello Monika,
this a an unusual macro. Congrats, I like your picture very much. Excellent POV, great sharpness and very nice warm colours. This is a great composition. Thanks for posting. Have a nice weekend.

Interesting shot, looks like the prayer of a mortician... Full of bizarre, almost look like an evil cartoonish character...

Hi, Monika,
The lighting is very interesting,
great composition.

WOW, different indeed. And now I have the monitor to appreciate it ... I used another one during the days on standard settings good for text, and the details did not come out at all. When I look at it now, it is SO AMAZING.
This a very unusual wonderful shot. Light and colours and the effect created by the sun reflecting in the OOF waterdrops in the BG ... The detail in the face and eyes with the waterdrops on it ...
A piece of art Monika, well done!

Nice shot Monika and artfully executed. This light makes the shot. Well composed and good detail within your DOF. Well done & have a Great weekend!

Hi Monika,
wow, a little mystic but wonderful.
I love the little drops shining in the light from behind and through the wings. Realy unusual - and beautiful, thanks and greetings

Natrojowo nierzeczywiste :-) I wcale nie jest "gloomy", wrecz przeciwne - te cieple tonacje sprawiaja, ze zdjecie jest optymistyczne w wymowie. W koncu wstaje nowy dzien :-)

I love it Monika,
This is a great shot, the lighting is fantastic.
The Post is good too!!!!! Have a wonderful weekend.
