[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not very often do I take my tripod with me in wet and marshy areas. The day I took this picture I brought it and was very glad this platycnemis pennipes sat silently on his post. Although the species looks like the other common blue damsels it is easy to recognise by the wide 'legs'. In the netherlands it occurs in wet areas and along small streams and rivers.

Hello Jacob
Very nice shot of damselfly,
Beautiful composition and
good focusing,Excellent


Hi Jacob,
it was definite worth to carry the tripod, the details are great. Well composed, good POV and composition. Maybe a bit lack of contrast.
Very well done.

Hello Jacob,

Nice composition! Verry sharpen!

Hi Jacob.
We have them here too. This are very cute and friendly damselflies. If you spend some time with them, they get used to you and allow great shots, just like the one you offer to us. Everything is perfect, I would saturate colous just a bit more, but only a question of personal taste. I invite you to see the one have posted HERE which is one of my favoirites damselfly shots.
Best regards, Felipe.
