Mate this dragonfly is also welcomed. Great capture. I like how you have teh orange behind it too it seperates the green dragonfly from the greenery behind it.

Amazing capture! I was impressed by the contrasting colour in the background. After a quick Google, I discovered that a 'koi' is a fish, which actually makes this photo all the more amazing. Well done!

Helen said it all. the koi in the background makes this a special photo. Though maybe a longer DOF would have been better? thanks for the astute comments on my page!

Excellent! The position of the koi is perfect - almost like a flame.
