I agree with Ginnie! And what a wonderful name: chocolate-brown dragonfly- but, please, enjoyable only for/by our eyes!
Ray: Thanks, Philine.
Much to pretty to become a snack for something, eh!
Sweet! Never seen a chocolate one before (unless you have shown one and I have forgottensmile )

Excellent picture Ray. Pretty well sharp all over and in a nice composition and colour background.
Ray: Thanks, Bill. The background turned out well.
What a delicate creature Ray, it fits in nicely with the colour of the background.
Ray: Thanks, Brian. The lens was kind to me with the way it captured the background.
