Hello Friends.
Today is one of the hottest day in last a few days. My sons called me, and told that they want to go away from the city to take some photos and have a rest. It was a reasonable offer and I accepted.

We went first new city zoo but there was very hot too. However we have taken some photos that I'll send them later. After we decided to go to Uluabat Kus Cenneti (Uluabat is a lake near Bursa about 40 km far and here is a national park named bird heaven).

Actually I didn't able to take some bird photos, but I found this lovely red coloured insect. I'm not sure it is a dragonfly or damselfly. I never interested in insects before meeting TrekNature.

There was a marshy place and live interesting animals. Water snakes, frogs, lots ef kinds insects.

If someone could give me an ID about this insect, I'll be happy.

During taken, I used zoom and flash. Because there was a bit dark.

This Is A DragonFly when resting the wings are held out to the side a damselfly has smaller body and has wings held above it not to the sides. i love the bright red color how it stands out on the background good Job. i have a few red dragonfly pics that i will ad at a latter date but i never could find the name to it.

Hi Fevzi,
What a color. I would never expect that dragonflies would have this kind of color. The photo could be a tad sharper. But who am I to judge, I wouldn't even be able to make this kind of photo.

Merhaba fevzi bey
çok şahane yakalamışsınız.elinize sağlık

what a stunning coloured dragonfly. As Niek says, needs to be a touch sharper and I think a touch darker to bring some detail into the leaf(?) - maybe the flash was just a touch too bright?


Sorry OOP for today. :-)

Merhaba, kontrast renkler çok dikkat çekici ve güzel olmuş.

Of of of! Abi ya bana niye haber vermedin? Aşkolsun! Ben de denemek istiyorum böyle börtü böcek resimlerini ama hiç denk gelmiyor.
Ellerine sağlık, çok güzel olmuş.

Merhaba Fevzi Bey,
Çok hoş bir yusufçuk makrosu.Seçtiğiniz bakış açısı ile yusufçuğun heryeri tüm detayları ile görülüyor.Kadraj,ışık,arka plan çok güzel,burada tek söyleyebileceğim f i kısarak DOF un arttırılması olabilir.Ellerinize sağlık!
