|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Great numbers of these Damselflies were flying in woods of Masal in North Iran. They were staring at me curiously and sat still as though they were posing for pictures.|
Look at the fine reflections on its abdomen! The vally behand me and the mountain coomb behind can be seen in the original.
I sought thru the whole internet to find what species it is, no luck.
Thanks for looking

A good effort in this capture. Well done on the composition.
This is similar to my River Jewelwing.

Iy's a Calopteryx xanthostoma.
The photo is a bit barker, but most of all is a great shot.
Excellent composition and cropping in this image of a damselfly. There is very little depth of field, so even though the wings and legs are in sharp focus, the head and eyes are not. A useful rule whan photographing wild life is always to have the eyes in focus. Changing to a faster ISO is one way of getting better depth of field and hence better focus.
