Photographer's Comments
Found this in my mother's garden. Only managed to get 2 shots of it before it flew away. Tried to take the whole body into the frame, but the dragonfly flew away before I could do anything. I think this composition works as well. Comments on how to improve this photo, composition wise or post processing is highly appreciated.

Hi sifu :) really well taken but I think much better can focus on the eyes cause they are the most beautiful part :) I am still learning taking macro. May I have your help please? Did you bounce the flash directly or you DIY the flash diffuser?
