[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My first decent Dragonfly.
As i was outside in the garden at work
looking for spiders i saw this nice
dragonfly flying around.
it must have seen me, too,
because it landed just in front of me and
waited until i had taken enough photos.
i wanted to get a little closer
but it was then when it flew away again.

Very good macro shot of an odonata!
Perfect details!
Very good sharpness!

Hi Torsten,
ich gratuliere Dir zu Deiner ersten Libelle, sie hat sich richtig dekorativ hingesetzt und Du hattest einen prima Punkt, so auf gleicher Höhe seitlich. So sieht man die wunderschönen Augen und das ganze Tier ist wunderschön scharf. Ich finde, sie sehen immer aus als ob sie lächeln würden. Es ist übrigens eine blutrote Heidelibelle, die habe ich auch schon ein paarmal hier auf TN. Viel Spaß weiterhin und liebe Grüße
