I'm not to good with dragonfly identification.
Cosmin Manci said that it is a female of Sympetrum Sanguineum (Müller, 1764).

@later edit:
The yellow color from the back is a yellow leaf. I took this position exactly that the insect body to be over the yellow leaf and have a special background. sadly by taking this position a small portion of the tip of the dragonfly abdomen got out of focus. I didn't observe that on the field. Maybe if I had live view I would ed observe that.

Hi Anghel,
An incredible macro shot made with your tele...
It's so good the ambience coloring got here, that green hues really work great with the contrasting golden tones of the insect.
Great image and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hi Anghel
C'est une autre très belle prise de ta part. Félicitations pour le bg, les couleurs, la netteté et la pose de l'insecte.

Merci pour l'envoie!

Super tare libelula! Culori si detalii foarte faine. In plus Bg.pot zice ca se asorteaza perfect insectei.
M-ai facut sa inghit in gol in asteptarea primaverii si a insectelor.Acum in Montreal sunt -30C si pe sambata se anunta -40C ;) Primavara e f. departe...

Hello Anghel,
Extremely well presented shot here ...i just love the sharpness and good DoF .The parallel composition works fine with the details on the dragonfly being shown in good light.The bit of yellow ( i wonder what!!) in the BG highlights your subject and the green tones on the sides compliment the whole composition.
Very well done.

Buna Anghel

Da, Cosmin are dreptate (ca de pbicei cand vine vorba de lubelule) si asta e o femela de Sympetrum sanguineum...si inca una foarte frumoasa.
Nu o data am intalnit femele cu culori mult mai spalacite si seci, in schimb se intapla sa dau de una ca asta si tot cheful revine imediat :)

Foarte faina poza, cu detalii superbe si focus exact pe capul si corpul libelulei. Adancimea campului e si ea bine selectata si acorda imaginii acel fundal uniform care scoate si mai bine subiectul in evidenta.

Bravo si merci de postare

Buna Anghel,

Claritatea cu care ai redat imaginea libelulei este impresionanta. DOF-ul ales s-a dovedit foarte bun deoarece nu numai corpul insectei este redat clar ci si o buna parte a aripilor. Pata galbena din fundal este foarte bine aleasa pentru a sublinia structura delicata a aripilor.

TFS si toate cele bune,

Hello Anghel,

Fantastic close up of this beautiful dragonfly.
Wonderful colours with fantastic definition.
Lighting and composition are excellent.
Good notes.

That's so beautiful, Anghel,
I love the sharpness and the wonderful background. So sunny, just fantastic, thanks
