Good pic for a phone camera, but a compact camera can do a lot better. Looks like you took the picture from far away and cropped it a lot afterwards. You can get close to dragonflies if you progress slowly. They may fly away but if you stay put and wait a bit they will come back at the exact same spot (they have their habits...).

Now this is what I get when I crop my dragonfly pictures:

he/she sure is hairy.
The wings look like you could partition them off and make stained glass out of them.

Cool images!

Your macro shot is excellent, ofnuts. Details are bright and clear.

This is dragon fly taken by ofnuts. I just couldn't resist making the wing look like stained glass.
