I had something totally different entered for this "Evening" challenge... until I voted on the Free Study for July and saw two images almost just like mine.

*heavy sigh*

So, just a few hours before voting, I changed to this one. *sigh again*

I hope I didn't make a mistake.

This is what I had entered before: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/86447/120/707344.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/86447/120/707344.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Many thanks to the dragonfly (and Lenny!) for being there for me in my darkest hour. *smile*

a little to out of the box for an evening challenge for a lot of voters I guess.

Great close-up but to me, it takes away from the feeling of 'Evening'.

I love this photo. Wouldve been nice to have the entire thing be in focus (wings and tail a bit out of focus), but I cant have everything! Awesome photo!

Lovely muted colours with a nice sheen on the dragonfly tail. I like how the greens and blues of the dragonfly contrast with the mainly orange background. Lovely composition too.
