[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sympetrum striolatum -The Common Darter is probably one of Europe's most common Dragonfly. This photograph was taken at noon on a rare July sunny day on marsh-land near to my home in Devon, UK. It is unusual to get the chance to see both the male and female posing so well together. The male is above.

Hi Charles,

Wonderful capture of dragonfly-du...Wow! You are a lucky person!
Great sharpness with nice colors of the dragonflies from a well-chosen POV and great DOF. The composition is just wonderful.

Thanks for sharing!
