Great detail and clarity. Perfect composition with the wings open...I especially like how you got him (or her) grasping the piece of grasp. It's the little things that always get me!! Nice one!!

MY PHOTOGRAFIC VISION... I am not an artist, I only let you see with my eyes...!

It is always amazing how transparent the wings are - you captured them (and the whole dragonfly) just perfect. I like the angles of the body of the dragonfly and the several grasses, some are different and some are the same.
