[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Was lucky enough to observe a mass dragonfly emergence when visiting "Mörrumsån". Hundreds of Green-eyed Hooktail/Small Pincertail(Onychogomphus forcipatus) emerged during a period of three to four hours. Here three newly transformed dragonflies are waiting for their wings and abdomens to expand fully and the wings to harden sufficiently to allow flight.

Bonjour Lars
Bravo pour cette magnifique prise de vue.
Celà doit être tellement difficile de réussir une telle photo avec cette petite bestiole qui ne tient pas en place.Belles couleurs et très beaux détails. Avec comme prime cette belle petite riviere.
Merci et félicitations.....JP

This might have been an exciting event to watch, Lars.
I see the three young ones drying up on the rock in the water.
Your 20mm lens gives a wide view of the location where the event took place.
Hope to see close-up pictures of some of these freshly emerged dragonflies.
TFS and regards.

quite unique shot of this three the dragon fly with different point of view with low horizon, the dof was also excellent
