Wow!
Beautiful shot. Glad to have you on bugguide. Amazing!

 
Thanks
Thank you very much for your kind words. They really mean a lot to me as I'm still just getting started with my photographic career. =) Although I have to give some credit to the dragonfly too--in addition to being absolutely gorgeous, he also kept coming back to the same perch, where posed nicely for me (it even looks like he's "cheesing").
