Hello TN-friends
I'm back after my summer-break.
I don't like to sit at the computer in the summer-time, too many other important and wonderful things to do in that time ...
But I'm sure you don't mind my abstinence ;-)

Here I have a lovely tiny dragon from Myanmar for you.
This is a Grizzled Pintail - male / Acisoma panorpoides panorpoides Rambur, 1842, a species of dragonfly in family Libellulidae.

I love these elegant blue dragons so much, already had a female here some years ago, if you are interested feel free to have a quick look.

I wish you all a wonderful sunday ...
Warm regards

Thanks for sharing this beauty!
Have a good week,

Hello Sabine,
Good to see you back and with a lovely capture of a fantastic dragonfly! I like your POV and the wonderful turquoise blue colour. Great sharpness too and a beautiful background of dry golden leaves.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Sabine,
How nice to you back with a photo! Yes I did mind your absence!
A come-back with a wonderful photo in superb sharpness and very beautiful contrasting colours against the brown/orange BG. Great POV and composition.

Good POV.

Blue in different shades of red, lovely. Beautiful species with impressive colors and design, well captured. tfs.

Welcome back with a perfectly delightful archive. When you took this one I was paralyzed. I am not walking and have limited hand movement but am at home and improving...you and your images need no improvement!

Hello Sabine,
Nice colours and very good details. Interesting contrast and lovely colours.
Splendid butterfly.

Hello Sabine,
Nice to see you back with this great shot! Splendid colours and contrast of this dragonfly with cold tones on warm leaves. Impressive details. Cheers,

Hi Sabine,
Welcome back. A nice capture of this beautiful Trumpet tail (male) Acisoma panorpoides Dragonfly. It is abundant here also. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hallo Sabine.
Sehr langen Urlaub gehabt?
Ein wunderschönes Exemplar von der Sorte und schon im April aktiv. Sehr intensive Farben die auf dem (herbstlichen) Untergrund sehr gut zu Geltung kommen. Liebe Grüße Siggi

woww:) nice to see you come back BEF! Wellcome!
Very nice composition, the dragonfly is well positioned and the blurred background doesn't compete with your subject. Focus is spot-on as always!
TFS and have a great new week MF!


Hello Sabine,
Beautiful dragonfly with fine details, nice colours, excellent POV and composition. Well done!

Hello "My dear friend Sabine!" ... I am glad to see one of your photos again! ... Today's shot is "pure contrast" ... Awesome! ... Same I said about the POV and light, eloquent widely throughout the photo! It is a completely visual plane used, not even a space that does not generate interest! Good job! ... seems that the dragonfly could fly from the photo!
Regards, TFS, Welcome MF!

hello Sabine
nice to see a picture from you
this one is very good ,nice pose and beautiful colours
i hope you have good picture,s for TN
greeting lou

Hallo Sabine,
der Wunsch wurde erhört, zu hast Dich zurückgemeldet ... : o ) Dank dem wunderbaren Portrait einer nie gesehenen Libellenart weiss ich auch schon, was Dich so in den Ferien umtreibt. Aussergewöhnlich geschickt gewählter Hintergrund. Ich habe immer noch grosse Mühe, so nah an eine Libelle heranzukommen wie Du und deshalb kann ich wenig Einfluss auf die Komposition nehmen. Von Dir müsste ich wohl noch die Geduld lernen, die für ein solches Brustbild nötig ist.
Herzlich grüsst Dich

Liebe Sabine,
Bist wieder zurück, freut mich sehr! Ich hoffe, Du hast den Sommer in vollen Zügen genossen.
Ein schönes Libellenbild mit einer feinen Farbgebung, die mir speziell gefällt. Eine interessante Kreatur auch, verstehe, dass dein Fotografenauge sie schäzt.
Werde nächste Woche zwei Tage in München sein, aber leider diesmal habe ein sehr intensives Programm. Werde aber in Zukunft öfters in München sein und hoffe, dich mal treffen zu können.
Herzlich grüsst

Hola Wishnu

Una bonita libelula, con esos colores azules claros perfectos. Me gusta mucho la composición del fondo en esos tonos marrones, que realzan mucho al insecto, perfecto POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hi Sabine,

a very nice photo from this Dragonfly with great pov and details.
Fine colours.
This one I have never been seen before.


Hallo Sabine
schön das du wieder hier bist, ist das eine schöne Libelle ! mir gefällt seine zarte blaue Farbe und seine schöne Augen, gutes Licht und feine details
der hintergrund gefällt mir auch sehr gut weil es echte Natur ist
Grüsse Jacqueline

I wish I could say that i'm back from a break, sabine, but I really do not know...But that's a different story altogether.
This is a stunning shot, the turquoise stands out so perfectly against the rust BG...
I love this macro!

Hello Wishnu,
This is top quality picture. The dargonfly is well in focus. Composition is very please to my eyes.
best wishes,

Liebe Sabine,
bildschön diagonal in Szene gestetzte elegante Libelle, deren zartes Hellblau gegen das Rotbraun der trockenen Bläter besonders gut zur Geltung kommt.
"don't like to sit at the computer in the summer-time" - mir ging's genau so. Jetzt mit den langen Herbstabenden gewinnt der Computer dank der prächtigen Fotos meiner Freunde von TN aber doch wieder an Attraktivität...
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

Hi sabine. This dragonfly is very sharp and the colors are so pleasing. Very good contrast against the dry leaves. Excellent lenswork and framing. Kudos my friend and best regards - Jusni
