Beautiful, Livio... the way this dragonfly is perched on the twig, so tenuously, and yet with such tenacity. Just perfect shot on all levels. Congratulations!

Great shot Livio. Composition, DOF and OOF background are fantastic. The dragonfly is an interesting one, well done.
I'm glad to see you've finally got out of the city :)

Hi Livio
This is a very good picture of this tiger, no nits, just beautiful!
I have looked, I cannot get the name of the poet who wrote the little ryme I posted with the owl.
Do you know the name of the poet who wrote poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree? This is one I have been looking for for a long time.
PS, I also love that fatm funny hornbill.

A wonderful capture of this dragonfly, Livio.
It almost looks like a "bumble bee" version, with its yellow and black markings. Great detail, lighing and BG. Thank you for sharing such a fine photo.
