|This is Southern Emerald Damselfly. One of the 5 Lestes species which can be seen in the Netherlands.|
It's a scarce migrant and can pop up unexpected in strange habitats. It can easily be distinguished by the two colored pterostigma.

the different green colours are nicely presented and look very beautiful. A suitable depth of field has been selected and focus is just right.
Best wishes, Peter

I haven't seen this species of Lestes before and now I know that you can distinguish it by the bi-coloured pterostigma.
Fine capture with good bg and judicial use of the limted DOF.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

I also managed to get a few shots of this species, but sadly they are all really close to the ground...in thick vegetation!
This one, on the other hand, it a beauty!
I really like the shallow DOF used here by you - it really focuses all the attention on the damsel and also blurres teh BG wonderfully.
The sharpness is impeccable and the warm lighting gives the photo a special mood.
Bravo and TFS
