[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In one of sunny days of July there was I on coast of pond. Also has suddenly seen in water a dragonfly who sank. I quickly have got her from water and have tried to make as much as possible pictures (macro). But when the dragonfly appeared on coast she has very quickly dried and has departed. Other picture (in TrekEarth) - process of drying.

Brilliant photo Gennady the colours and clarity as paul says the grass across the wing takes away from the image. I had no idear which it was but paul seems to have that too. The picture could do with a few notes about where the picture was taken and how you did it.

Gennady, A beautiful 'Tiger' you have shot. Pitty of the leaf covering part of the insect.
Greetings, Jan

This is a (male?) Club-tailed Dragonfly Gomphus vulgatissimus (I think) and it is a handsome beast. It's an excellent photo, the only bad point is that blade over the left wings and tip of abdomen. Good one!

Points tomorrow

Beautifully sharp capture of this beast with the minor nit of the grass covering part of the wing and tail. I think Paul may well be right in his ID. I agree that a note would be nice.

Very nice capture Gennady and welcome on TN. Very clear shot with great colours. Though a note telling about the picture would be appreciated.

Good combination of yellow and green color. Dragon-fly is remarkable! Photograph is outstanding!

Reagardless on being a common theme and relativelly on of the easiest in macro/close up photography its not pasee and worn out if subject and angles are carefully chosen, like here. I admire the crisp of the colour and shape of your subject. Even a closeup of the head and stern woul`ve made a good shot, even if not incorporating the wings totally ! Carry on !

This species is Gomphus flavipes(Yellow-Legged Clubtail) and not G.vulgatissimus(This species has black legs without yellow colouring).
