Calopteryx virgo (Linnaeus, 1758)
A lovely capture of this damselfly showing brilliant colours and details in those delicate wings. I like this upright pose she gave you.
The composition is very nice and the OOF BG compliments the insect very well. You have achieved excellent DOF with the f/4 aperture, but that again is probably attributed to the amazing performance of these modern compact digital cameras. The exposure was also very well managed.
Good work and TFS.
In my first posts in TN, two years ago, I asked other members if Virgo or Splendes, as they sometimes are very similar, and not easy to ident, now I am almost sure, they where all Virgos.
Well done to get this withut flash, the metallic colours are really nice, and the eye detailed.
Thanks my friend.
Very beautiful picture of this damselfly. I like the colors and DOF and POV are good. I like it to see th details in this way. Thanks.
A lovely capture, with very good color, metallic reflection, great details, and a good bg.
TFS, JosÚ M.
a beautiful pose of this damselfly, very well captured. I love how the light enhances the vibrant colors and let the wings glitter. POV, and DOF are excellent the dansel is nicely set free from the background. A lovely composition.
Beautiful colours it has! I like its pose with that interesting expression on its face!
Thank you and best regards!
Beautiful shot of this damselfly. Excellent POV and DOF and very vibrant colours.
As usual your notes are very informative
Very interesting stance this damselfly has adopted for you, Paulo.
Very good POV, DOF and colours.
It's not a so easy species to shot because it is very fast to fly off. I spend many and many times to try to photograph it, so I currently now that such a kind of picture is very difficult to do!
Well done, good composition and exposure too.
Great Lighting and detail of the subject. The POV and sharpness are also great and make for a wonderful pic. TFS,
An excellent capture of this colourful damselfly.
Good lighting,excellent detail and a very good POV.
a very nice close-up of this lovely damselfly.
IMO the BG is a bit disturbing, either the black or the oof green, maybe you couild choosed another angle.
The details and colours are nice and the DOF is good too.
Very well done my friend.
Nice shot with great details. POV and DOF are great. Thank Allan.
Nice shot! Simple POV and framing work well, picture has good details too. It seems you had a harsh light because some spots are overexposed and the picture is generaly quite bright. Overall, it's a good shot though.
really nice view.
first i have thinked at C.splendens because of the colour... here female of C.virgo have more brown wings (muh more).
TFS, a lot,
Very beautifull Calopteryx. I like shinning colours, pose, details on body, eyes and wings. Great macro my friend!
excellent macro, good composition and sharpness. I like it a lot. Well done photo.
He is absolute great! Nice moment, details, colours, POV....
Every thing is great!
somehow I missed this damsel, it's so beautiful. Wonderful colours and sharpness on this marvelous metallic insect. They are not easy to catch, so shy. I also tried it some days ago, I have seen many of them, but all were so far away, I haven't had a chance for a good shot. So thanks for sharing yours, very well done, bye

What's a nice "diagonal". It's a very rare case, when the dark triangle not only does not spoil, but strengthens positive perception of a picture. Crystal cleanliness and subtlety of lines are distinctive feature of this shot. TFS.
Nice picture and useful comment. Good job.
Another beautiful dmselfly , the POV is great and the green colour of the insect works fine with the blur,green folliage of the background.
I 'm starting be addict in insects macro and it ┤s your fault! lol!
also your notes are always interesting and a perfect complement to your photos!
Great picture of this damselfly. Great DOF and color
Wish you success with conservation ambitions.
Picture here has natural colours. Beautiful demoiselle. Your note is pleasant to read and has content.
Calopteryx are among the most elegant damsels, this one is very beautiful, with good POV and excellent sharpness, head and wings being both in focus. Just a touch of regret for the cluttered background, but it's something we all have to deal with frequently. TFS, Jerome.
