Merhaba Mehmet,

Nice taken, perhaps a little bit blurred on the wings in foreground.
Perhaps through the gry background.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Mehmet,
It's very good, great managed ligth and very suitable settings for make contrast the dragonfly again a very difficult background. Good note, useful. A little soft focused in eye of the insect, buth nothing to down the final result.

Merhaba Mehmet,
yusufçuk oynamak güzel.
Bir üst BG Excellent POV.
A wonderful akşam,

P.S. Tüm fotoğrafçılar Türkiye'de bir resmi adanmış. I hope you like it.

Hi Mehmet, this is utterly awesome capture of a female Brachythemis fuscopalliata (Dark-winged groundling) -not Sympetrum- that i am pretty sure that it is the 1st post on TN of the species. Hence, i congratulate you MF! It is among our most striking and identifiable species. Mature males are easily recognised by the dark brown (may appear black or reddish) patch covering the basal three-fifths of the wings, from the base to beyond the nodes. The patch is (probably always) absent in females - as is here- and teneral males, becoming more pronounced with age. The stubby build, smudgy abdominal pattern, dark venation and pale pterostigmas are distinguishing the species and congeners from other libellulids.
TFS this special post once more Mehmet!
Have a nice night!


ülkemizde az bulunan bir yusufçuk türünden güzel bir kare göndermişsin, Mehmet. eline sağlık.

Hi Mehmet, Good close up with fine details of the transparent wings. DOF works well to put emphasis on the dragonfly rather than the background. TFS. Murray.
