Dragonfly emerging from Nymph. It was really exciting to see how this beauty creeps out of there

I am new here, my wife told me to post here as well

Thanks for stopping by

Nice to see you here as well Ger !! So we can share our passion together. This is a real gorgeous shot. Love the sharpness/details, and colours, well done

hi ger
very good focus on head
good job
best regards
aleks ;)

Hi Ger,
you start with a very good picture, the action are very nice.
Pretty good sharpness and details, well composed and a very nice low POV.
Well done.

Welcome to TN.

Nice pic
Something must has gone wrong as the exuvia (old skin) is supposed to hold the support. The extraction must have been more difficult this way.

Hello Ger
As a flyfisherman I can understand the emergence of the adult from the nymph..You have captured the moment very well indeed with great detail..if I may make a sugestion then then perhaps an f8 would have kept more detail in the case giving the picture more impact.
That said welcome to treknature and thank you for posting an image that portrays the life cycle of the Dragonfly very well.
Best Regards

Hi Ger,
it's realy one of the most impressive moments you can see in nature. I also had the great luck to see this "birth" this summer.
Your shot is wonderful, at which time have you seen that. My dragonfly went out at midnight!!!
Bye and greetings

Hey Ger... Keep up the good work. Listen to your wife and keep posting your pictures. Good job with this on. Cheers!
