LIBELLOIDES COCCAJUS

Schmetterlingshaft
Ascalaphe soufré

Order: Neuroptera
Family: Ascalaphidae
Size: 42-55mm
Distribution:Central Europe
Habitat: Dry and sunny places
Diet: Small insects

These very special and strange insects were flying up and down at a very exposed dry place where our friend Dieter Meyer (meyerd) had taken me. It was amazing to see so many of them at the same place. Difficult however to catch them because the ground was very steep and I felt a little dizzy.
Herzlichen Dank, Dieter!

Bonjour Anne,
How wonderful to have Libelloides in your area!
You have made a fine capture of L. coccajus that is of high tecnical standard to show the details with excellent sharpness and colours and set in a pleasing diagonal composition against a nice blurry natural BG.
Merci Anne: je te veux une bonne soirée,
Amitiés,
Ivan

Hello Anne,
I would love to see this wonderful insect that we hoped to see on Lesvos but didn't!! Your capture is really great showing very sharp details and lovely natural colours. A very beautiful background and a fine composition too!
Many thanks and have a nice evening, Ulla

Liebe Anne,
Du hast Deine Chance mit den Haften wirklich sehr gut genutzt, was bei mir (trotz Anne's Hosenbeinen ) nicht zutrifft. Auch ich habe sehr gute Erinnerungen an den Tag in Les Follatères mit Dir. Meine Bildausbeute ist wohl magerer als bei Dir (nur die Käfer sind ok). Ich hoffe, bei Dir noch mehr von Les Follatères zu sehen!
Beste Grüsse,
Dieter

Mais quelle magnifique espece ma chere,elle n'habite pas dans mes pelouses et c'est vraiment une jolie surprise pour moi...pas de commentaires a la qualite' toujours excellente et a la prise de vue parfaite!Mes compliments et bonne soiree',LUCIANO

Gracias por tus comentarios Anne. Esta especie que publicas es siempre muy espectacular debido a su forma y colores fuertemente contrastados. Interesante y efectivo el ángulo zenital empleado. Falta algo de diferenciación en los negros. Un bello trabajo.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Bonsoir Anne,
Superbe! Quelle chance tu as d'avoir vu ce bel insecte et quel talent pour le photographier en diagonale, avec une richesse de détails et de couleurs et un arrière-plan superbe. Bravo et bonne soirée,
Catherine

Hello Anne,

hello Anne
beautiful insect and beautiful colours with great details
a Beauty Anne
greeting lou

Oooohhhh, Anne, gibt es diese tollen Insekten wirklich in der Schweiz zu sehen? Ich dachte schon, man findet sie nur in wärmeren Gefilden. Jedenfalls wüßte ich nicht, dass in meiner Gegend schon mal solche gesichtet worden wären.
Es wäre mein Traum das mit eigenen Augen sehen zu dürfen, solch ein faszinierender Flattermann.
Der Name ist gewöhnungsbedürftig.
Was ist das denn nun - Libelle oder Schmetterling? Egal, einfach super, vielen Dank und herzlichen Glückwunsch zu diesem Fang.
Liebe Grüße
Sabine - wishnugaruda

Bonsoir Anne
Je ne connaissais pas le nom de ce papillon, que l'on rencontre assez fréquemment dans le sud de la France.
Merci pour l'info, et pour les détails de ton cliché
Amicalement
Laurent

Liebe Anne,
wundervolles Makro dieser Schmetterlingshaft. Ich mag den POV, den Sie dieses schöne Insekt auf dem Körper fotografiert haben. Schöne Farben und ein nettes unscharfes BG. Eine sehr ordentliche Darstellung.Grüße Siggi

Hi Anne,

Impressive capture of a spectacular neuropteran, seems perfect in every way.
Great use of the DOF, everything looks amazingly sharp.
TFS and have a nice night!
Cheers,

Bayram

Very interesting and unique insect.
Hmmm ... Dragonfly's wings + butterfly's antena + hairy body ...
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Anne,
Splendid photo of this interesting species, TFS!

Hellow Anne,
A brilliant diagonal composition with a pin sharp image and spot on exposure showing unique fine wing details and the intricate hairs on its body and head.
erwin...

C'est super
:-)

ciao Anne!
spero di avere a breve la possibilita' e l'occasione di fotografare questa specie
che mi attira parecchio
luce dura ma la composizione e' davvero bella con ottimi dettagli
grazie sERGIO

Ciao Anne,
splendida cattura di Libelloides coccaius, che recentemente ho fotografato più volte anch'io, paradossalmente anche per me è stato più difficile riprenderlo in un ambiente in cui ne volavano moltissimi, ottima nitidezza e bellissimi colori luminosi e ben contrastati, la composizione come sempre perfetta, forse un piccolo vantaggio si sarebbe avuto conl'antenna destra fuori dallo sfondo del fiore secco.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon pomeriggio
Con amicizia
Maurizio
