You call it metallic..I call it sharkskin once more..I wonder if th eword is still used. I had a sports jacket of this colour but rarely wore it...if it were here now it would be 50 plus years old...it was a popular combination of colours which I have only seen on insects such as this..since..
Very good Joey!

A wonderful image of a damselfly. I never heard about this insect. I'm glad to see this one on my screen. Beautiful capture. Very, very sharp. The glow on the wings and body. Amazing. The proportions between the damselfly and the leaves gives a good expression about the size of this insect. POV, BG and DOF are good. Natural colours. A perfect photo, well done. Regards and TFS BOB
I am very pleased for you and your amazing close-up picture. You have presented this beauty with great skillfulness. Terrific of quality and subject picture. Superb exposure, colours and sharpness. Composition and framing are the best. My greetings.

a fine capture of the damselfly. A nice composition and beautiful colours. Due to high sharpness, the details become very clear. Light is very pleasant bringing up only slight reflections on the wings and the 'metallic' body.
Best wishes, Peter

A nice break from your visit to the butterfly house and a great comback to natural habitats :) Don't get me wrong, i like your photos from there, but i always thought it's nice to mix things up :)
A splendid macro of this Calopteryx virgo, shining so beautifully against that uniform BG.
The vibrant colors and refletions from the damsel here really bring it out so well, even from the thumbnail.
Excellent sharpness across the entire body, despite using that great shallow DOF. Well exposed and composed.
Bravo and TFS

that's wonderful, this damsel is so beautiful - but also very shy, not easy to catch so close. Very well done, thanks

ce male est magnifiquement presenté avec ses ailes noires et ses reflets matalliques.
il y a un petit peu de bruit sur le BG mais rien de bien genant.
bravo et bon week end.

I missed this beauty!
One can't tire of seeing this demoiselle, especially when it is so well presented as in this shot.
Supern composition on the leaf, POV, sharpness, bokeh BG and lighting.
Nice one from the summer!
Thanks and best wishes, Ivan
