It is perfectly fine :)
Another 'average' picture
[F36A9217_DxO_full]
by Erik Astrom, on Flickr
Nice one Erik, almost a silhouette, wings almost stopped - you must have used quite short shutter time... (oh I see it on flickr page: 1/4000 so short indeed)
I like this one better than F36A4824_DxO_full - there the background is so plain it could have been photoshopped, while here the background has some 'texture' that makes the picture feel much more 'alive'...

I just figure out - I didn't post here for a wile. My contribution hardly can compete with the last photo from Erik but that's what I have (2 years old files).
Crocothemis servilia - Scarlet skimmer. The Yellow one is female. Male is red.

Beautiful set of pictures! :)
+1 to DSP121's comment!
Especially the male scarlet skimmer is very nice with the monochrome grey-ish background; it stands out very nicely!(y)
