[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This damselfly, probably Calopteryx genus, was taking a rest in hot july afternoon perching in a tree close to a small waterfall. As they were always high up in the trees, this being at 2m) I steadyied the tripod against my body. 800 digital Asa compensated for poor light conditions.
Levels were adjusted with PS, cropping done with Irfanview.

Thanks for advice and comments :-)

This is a very lovely and interesting point of view, Patrick! The insect is slightly out of focus, but so many other things work so well here. Lovely image!

Very good shot!
The Calopteryx family is one of the bigest in odonatas.
This one I nver saw in Portugal.

Hi Patrick
Very nice shot and viva colours, but a bit noisy ;), also good composition.
Tanks for sharing
