[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.
