Anax imperator(Leach,1815)
UK: Emperor Blue dragonfly
DK: Stor Kejserguldsmed
FR: Anax empereur
NL: Grote keizerlibel



Males have a green thorax with a pair of blue transverse, oblique, blue bands on each side immediately in front of the forewings. There are a pair of blue longitudinal bands running down the length of the abdomen on either side of a black central band.
Females are very similarly patterned but are green throughout although their green abdominal bands may become blue with age.
Of all the large dragonflies, this species is most closely associated with still water and spends most of its time patrolling its territory, settling periodically on marginal vegetation. It is shy and easily disturbed at rest. It often takes its prey, caught in flight, onto adjacent grasslands or shrubs to eat. This species is usually immediately identifiable by the way its abdomen is slightly down-curved in flight. Females lay their eggs in submerged or floating vegetation.

nel WS un dettaglio dei segmenti addominali che terminano con delle strutture chiamati cerci,somiglianti ad una sorta di tenaglia, con la quale il maschio trattiene la femmina durante l’accoppiamento.

Ciao Sergione,un vero capolavoro.Dal punto di vista cromatico e' sicuramente una delle piu' belle foto della stagione di TN,questo mix di blu e verdi con sfumature pazzesche mi fa leccare i baffi.Oggi ti meriti tripla porzione di complimenti,ma scommetto che dopo averla fatta ti sei applaudito da solo..ehehe...buona giornata,Luciano

Ciao Sergio,

Certo, questa foto mette in mostra una serie di elementi, linee e colori. E 'sorprendente il modo di sfruttare la struttura della libellula ad ottenere le foto che la media di arte e natura. Questo POV dalla cima di insetti, è l'ideale per quello che fate con le vostre foto. Inoltre, dobbiamo dire che l'approccio è impecalbe, rendendo le ali aggiungere diversità ancora più al piano della fotografia. Congratulazioni.

Ciao Sergio
molto spinta questa bellissima macro che ci propone al meglio del suo splendore quest'Anax Imperator i cui colori e riflessi metallici sono davvero al top. La messa a fuoco poi ci regala un'uniforme distribuzione di nitidezza su tutti gli stupendi dettagli che certo non mancano in tutta la composizione.
