The insect

Just a beautiful dragonfly walking in the woods of Saint-Sauveur, near the College of Pic Saint Loup, during of a sunny morning.

On his head a pair of very short antennas allows him to capture the aroma surrounding, while his two compound eyes, huge, give him sharp eyesight. The three pairs of legs enable it to cling to plants like a bird on his perch.

Renowned live the day along ponds and rivers, our friend departed from the rule: no water source nearby.


Digital photography in aperture priority mode. The subject is relatively mobile, the speed is 1 / 2000 th. With a focal length of 300 mm and a sensitivity equivalent to ISO-400, the aperture of f/5.6.

Hello Philippe.

A very nice capture of, i think, a female Sympetrum fonscolombii 9Red-veined darter).
Composition is great as the colors are and that combined with a ver nice quiet background makes it a pleasant picture to look at.
