[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's always an amazing moment, to see damselflies while mating. These both were so pretty, he is wearing blue today, she is dressed in a noble oker-tone. Sometimes he was holding her and she hang under him, sometimes she was sitting and he was standing on her like an acrobat. So wonderful poses, they can make.
I like to show you the couple and both of them a little closer, so you can see very well how he holds her at the neck.

Thanks for looking and any words you tell me what you think about it, bye.

Excellent post.
This is perfect for a mating informative illustation. The close ups, are very good, this are really small.
I think is the same one I posted today.
Very nice work indeed, everything is on the spot.

super kollage, sabine! :-)
i mag diese libellen mit ihren großen runden glubschaugen.
perfektes timing und zusammenstellung dieses "privaten"
momentes im leben der beiden wunderschönen insekten, klasse details und farben.
am besten und interessantesten finde ich die vergrößerung
rechts unten - ich habe noch nie so richtig gesehen wie sein
"greifer" bei ihr im nacken sitzt.
einsame spitze & viele grüße, thorsten.

Interesting collage, I like the idea - showing perfect details of both male and female. Light and colors are excellent too.

Hallo Sabine,
also das ist wieder eine ganz tolle Naturdoku das du da zusammengebastelt hast. Ich neen dich nun Sabine Suzuki ;-). Klasse Makros, scharf bis in feinste Detail.

I'm not really keen on the way you have presented this, but the content is superb.

Sharpness is fantastic, I don't think I've seen the claspers in this much detail before.

Great shots.

Hi Sabine,
Wonderful presentation, nice work.
Great shots all, with the closeups revealing tack sharp detail, excellent color, DOF, and exposure :)
Very well done!

Hello Sabine,
An excelent document!! I see some months ago pictures in National Geographic in spanish about damselflies mating and your photos I think are better!
The very good and detailed macro is the best, good clearness as well.

Great post Sabine,
Excellent composition of Platycnemis pennipes!
Very good POV's!
Details are amaising!
