1. I would so much rather be proud of you than envious.
So I chose proud, and smash my camera.

I especially feel that way about your three shots of the insects. I have taken my haphazard photos for decades and have nothing like that in my files.

Next in my admiration are the waterlilies. You shine with those shots.

Thank you so much, seeing these makes me simply happy.

5. The lilies are incredible. The Bokeh in the last dragonfly
image is outrageous. Was that altered?

3. Love the flying dragon bugs
And the water lilies are beautiful. Considering the bright sun and shadow conditions you did very good. You either got really low or the water garden was higher than the ground. Either way - it's a nice perspective you don't see very often.
