Hola Kean, primero muchas gracias por tus amables y acertados comentarios.
En tu foto veo una buena composición y enfoque a pesar de las justas condiciones de luz que tenías.

Un saludo y a ver si se va arreglando todo por ese bonito País.

Un saludo desde España: J. Ignasi

Hi Kean

A very nice sharp shot of this Caloterid. It really does look very similar with our Calopterix from here :)
I really like your spot-on focus on the head of the damsel as well as the sharp details you present it with.
The flash management is very good and it provides enough light for the entire subject.
There is one aspect here i might have chenged...if i may:
1: the POV - perhaps it was not possible or you tried and it flew away, but i would have mooved to the left and try to get parallel with the damsel in order to get with all if focus using teh same shallow DOF.
Other than that, it's a great macro!

Bravo and TFS

bonjour kean
je pense qu'un leger recadrage aurait permis de mieux apprecier la demoiselle,mais deja comme cela on peut admirer sa belle couleur metallique.
bien vu.
