enter image description here
Both reflection and dynamic are used when we want to operate on an object during runtime.

Reflection is used to inspect meta-data of an object. It also has the ability to invoke members of an object on runtime.

Dynamic is a keyword which was introduced in .NET 4.0. It evaluates object calls during runtime. So until the method calls are made compiler is least bothered if those methods / properties etc exist or not.

Dynamic uses reflection internally. It caches the method calls made thus improving performance to a certain extent.

Reflection can invoke both public and private members of an object while dynamic can only invoke public members.

Below is the detail comparison sheet of the same.
