This month’s challenge theme, chosen by John McGarry, is Odonata - Dragonflies and Damselflies.

Dragonflies and Damselflies are some of the most interesting and varied subjects for macro photography with interesting patterns and colors. An example of each is shown.

Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.

These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Best of Nikonians Photo Contest, where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.

The number of finalists is based on the number of entrants. We plan on 6 finalists each month but will adjust based on the level of participation.

The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Macro and Close-Up Forum, and entered in the Best of Nikonians 2018 contest.

We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!
Good luck!!!

RULES:
-- Entrants must be Silver, Gold or Platinum members
-- Post up to 5 images but only one image per post
-- Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
-- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners

Remember:
-- Include a title in the subject line
-- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
-- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
-- Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
