Crocothemis erythraea - male
E’ una specie legata alle acque ferme ma non raramente si ritrova anche lungo canali di bonifica e irrigazione. Gli adulti volano a poca distanza dal suolo ai bordi degli specchi d’acqua, posandosi spesso su rami, arbusti secchi ben esposti al sole e al suolo. Ogni individuo ha posatoi abituali sui quali si riporta regolarmente dopo ogni volo. E’ una specie molto comune e spesso abbondante negli ambienti che colonizza. Negli individui giovani la colorazione del corpo è da gialla a bruno-giallastra; nei maschi maturi la colorazione diventa rosso vivo. E’ presente alla base delle quattro ali una macchia gialla più o meno estesa (piccola nelle anteriori). Il pterostigma è bruno chiaro, circondato da venature nere.

LA FOTO: scattata con il Nikkor AFS 300 F4, con cavalletto, senza flash, scatto remoto, F10,0 , 1/100 sec. , 200 ISO.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Ciao Enrico,
Simply superb!...
The details are superb and the blurry background is very enhancing.
Merry Christmas,

Very nice lateral view of this Scarlet butterfly, Enrico. The sharpness is brilliant and contrasting well against the green muted background. Thanks and have a nice day,
Jusni

Interesting exercises on the stick! Merry Christmas .

Hallo Enrico
The very bright red of this dragonfly stands out so well against the green backdrop, add to that the beautiful sunlight it is captured in and you have an explosion of colour in this image. The composition is well balanced the point of view great and the overall presentation pleasant, and of course the colours of Christmas very prominent. Thanks for sharing and a belated Merry Christmas. Best regards.
Anna

Enrico,

Wonderful take on this "curing" male dragonfly. Well done. No criticism here!

Happy New Year,

Mike

Hello Enrico,
Superb macro with excellent sharpness and details. The colour of the Dragonfly and the wing detail is stunning against the OOF BG. I love the diagonal pose of the Dragonfly. Well done.
Best regards,
Carl

Enrico, this is a beautiful shot of this red dragonfly. It has outstanding detail, bokeh and sharpness. Well done my friend. Bill

Hi Enrico,

The stem is helping to frame the insect. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Scarlet dragonfly. The luminosity has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
