Hello Siggi,
Excellent macro in superb sharpness and details. Splendid colors and taken from a perfect POV. High quality again!

Hello Siegfried,
Beautiful photograph of this metallic colored Damselfly against such perfect BG. Well exposure and nice POV.
Thanks for showing this beautiful species,
Regards and have a nice WE,

I rejoice your return to TN, Siegfried. You were sorely missed.
It is a delight for me to see your great work again.
This picture of a demoiselle is just professional.
I also admire the composition.

Hello Siegfried,
Another interesting image with excellent clarity and sharp details. What I like at this type of photos are the details of the wings shown like a structure of some interesting material..... Perfect clarity of this photo.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Siggi,
Nice shot, great exposure, sharpness and colors. Probably the functionless blank space at the top and the right is more than IMHO the optimal, but a lovely image overall. Tfs this - but when can we expect new pics from you?
Kind regards from Ireland, László
