Honestly I am not expecting much from this submission. Bad month for photography, weather not cooperating , last minute submissions , blah , blah.....

Hope the calming colors will calm the voters and keep me above 6. The problem here is that I like the wings more than the dragonfly's head lol !! and that is not the intention of this image.

Congrats on the top 20 finish Andrew. Can't understand the voters though. I would have bet my house that this would have been in the top 5.

I'm not sold on the processing. I think it would score more highly without the filter, but gee.. what a great photo! (not voting)
