[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While I was looking for dragonflies, damselflies, butterflies at the edge of a pond nearby my place in Nakon Nayok. I came across a damselfly capturing one of its relative. The victim still struggle as evidence by its waving abdomen. I plan to post 3 pictures of this event. These pictures are a bit soft though.

Pond Damselflies. Their wings are narrow, usually colourless and clear.
They prefer to lay eggs in pond or slow running water. They rest with the body horizontal and the wings pressed together above the abdomen.

Species: Argiocnemis rubescens rubeola Selys 1877 (female)
Found in Peninsular Malaysia, Viet Nam, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, Bangladesh

Hello JC,
Moment well captured!
Survival of the fittest, nature has to be cruel to work...
Maybe I'd crop a bit tighter here, if the image quality allows you..?

Hello Jitti!
Wonderful close up.I liked colors,POV,details,sharpness and composition a lot.TFS...:-)

Hello Jitti,
Nice shot! It is quite soft, but the moment captured here is worth sharing. Picture has very nice colours. I think the POV couldn've been better though. Lower angle could help to show the moment more clearly.
Overall, very well done on this one!

Hi Jitti, nice macro. Nice angle created with the Damsel fly, also good colours and notes. TFS.

Hi Jitti, Excellent colors, BG, POV, DOF, Great Job, TFS Kyle

Hello Jitti,

Very nice picture of those damselflies! Orange and green make a winning mix! I like the natural colors, pov and dof. There some noise in the bg that I tried to remove via the workshop I did on your picture... I hope you'll like it!

Very nice capture ! Colors, details and composition are excellent. This is the way of nature. The weak mutst die and the strong survive. Very well done.
