Orthetrum brunneum – male: i maschi hanno torace e addome azzurro chiaro; le femmine torace e addome bruno giallastri con sfumature grigie rosa; pterostigma chiaro. Presenta una certa somiglianza con O. coerulescens ma nel maschio anche il torace si colora di azzurro mentre i O. coerulescens il torace è bruno. Frequenta acque debolmente correnti e poco profonde o come ad esempio i piccoli canali di bonifica a fondo argilloso. Gli adulti si rinvengono nelle immediate vicinanze dei corsi d’acqua spesso posati sul terreno ben esposto al sole. E’ presente nell’Europa centro meridionale e nella regione mediterranea, manca nei paesi scandinavi mentre a est si spinge fino al Kashmir e al deserto del Gobi. Diffuso in tutta Italia.
FOTO: distanza dal soggetto 1,7 m, ho usato il nikkor AFS 300 con cavalletto, scatto remoto, senza flash,
F. 14 e 1/80.

Ciao Enrico,
Wow, la nitidezza che hai ottenuto su questa foto è assolutamente fantastica!L'incisività e la brillantezza sono eccezionali e la composizione è molto armoniosa. Luce e colori gestiti e bilanciati molto bene.
La zona della testa, i riflessi sugli occhi e la zona dell'attaccatura delle ali sono stupende.
Veramente bella.

Hallo Enrico
I am just so amazed to see the various positions dragon and damselflies sometimes find themselves in. I think they are all magnificent acrobats and your Orthetrum brunneum is no exception. Just love the grasping position, and its wings opened as if it helps with the balancing. The colour of its body is very eye-catching. Thanks for sharing a lovely macro. Best regards.

Hello Enrico,
this dragonfly is so ppretty and you showed it so skilfully. The full body sharpness is so excitn, and the point of parrallel is well exploited here.
I like the lighting in the image so pretty and excellent.

Hi Enrico,

The branch is helping to frame the insect. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Orthetrum brunneum. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
