Dear friends, thank you very much for your answers!

I also asked many people here in Romania, and most of the preferences were for photo no. 2, the one with the dragonfly in the water.

Why? They said that the hummingbird moth is a classic photo with insects in flight, but the one with the dragonfly is a very special photo, as a hypostasis of the dragonfly, but also in terms of composition. They also said that the color and clarity of the image is excellent.

Thank you again, we will see the result of the contest.

Best regards, Valeriu

Late to the party, but I agree no. 2 wins. It is the most unusual.

Late response - really nice shots and yes, number 2 is the one I picked out as the best.

I like every single one. But it's #2 by a nose in the race for best.

I would wote for #5, knowing how difficult it is to catch them in flight like you done.

For fun, I also add a picture I took of a dragonfly in Sweden this summer. I think it is the same species, in a similar position. I prefer your image to mine.
