It's such a phantastic and amazing moment to see those damselflies making love.
They must be acrobats to make this mating wheel.
It's a wonderful world!

Very god close-up, Sabine.
You caught a good moment wiht good sharpness and nice colours.
Well composed, good POV and DOF,
Very well done.

Very nicely done Wishnu! I like the horizontal element of the wings of both dragonflies. Of course exposure and sharpness are spot on also. Lovely image to look at and explore!
Best regards,

Very nice compostion Sabine, good POV&DOF.
The sharpness is +++++
TFS, Laurent

Good timing, and a beautiful composition. BG nicely blurred and the small blade of grass to the left is not disctracting. Indeed together with the rest of the BG it creates nice diagonal lines that balances the opposite orientation of the two damsels.
Gut gemacht!
P.S. I was lucky enough to have caught my first wheel (2 dragons) at the week-end, will post it in the next few days.

Nice photo Wishnu! You did a great job on this very difficult shot. TFS!

Bonjour Wishnu
How interesting to see those bugs taking care of themselves.
It's gracious !
The photo technique is perfect. L'arrière-plan hors foyer met bien en valeur le sujet principal.
Merci de nous avoir instruit.
