Salut Anne,je peu pas t'aider pour le nom,mais je suis oblige' de te faire mes meilleurs compliments pour cette image magnifique,les details sont parfaits presque partout malgre' la capture diagonale,une nouvelle image vraiment excellente! Belle semaine et merci,Luciano

Very impressive point of view that shows all the features of this Damselfly sharply and distinctly, Anne.
Kind of spotlight effect on the abdomen and wings and the catch-light in the eye make this image quite artistic.

Hello Anne,
A very nice and sharp image with this Damselfly. As usual the clarity is outstanding. Very interesting POV. The light in the eye looks great.

Liebe Anne,

gerne erwidere ich Dein Kompliment. Deine gut gelungene Aufnahme von L. dryas ist ein guter Beitrag zu TN. Zwar gibt es auch Bilder der gleichen Libellenart von Harm und und anderen, aber nicht in Anne-Qualität. Ich habe auch eine Aufnahme von Lestes dryas in meiner Sammlung-dank Dir! Sie entstand bei einer Exkursion mit Dir im Wallis. An meinem Gartenweiher tummelt sich einiges, aber eben Lestes viridis.
Herzlich grüsst Dich Dieter

Selective sharpening but added too much...otherwise good photo

hallo Anne
very nice picture with good details to show us the Lestes dryas

Hello Anne,
Incredible sharp detailed photo of this damselfly. Splendid colors against a nice blurred background. Good choice of composition.

Ciao Arjun, great macro of elegant damselfly, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Anne,
Most of the Damselfly photographs I have seen very tight framing due to its Horizontal POV. But here diagonal pose of the fly helped you to frame it nicely keeping well space in front of it. Well BG and good details.
Thanks for sharing with informative NOTE,

Bonjour Anne,
une magnifique photo, les détails sont remarquables.
Bonne netteté et teintes agréables en arrière plan.

Liebe Anne,
feine, subtile Präsentation dieses zarten Wesens.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss,

Hi Anne,
I don't think this photo would be terribly oversharpened. Maybe a very little on the head and the abdomen. Am I considered a back slapper if I publicly say I like this pic? :-)
Have a prosperous new year, kind regards from Ireland, László
