[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Any of numerous insects of the order Odonata, including the damselfly. They all have long narrow bodies, two pairs of almost equal-sized, glassy wings with a network of veins; short, bristlelike antennae; powerful, ‘toothed’ mouthparts; and very large compound eyes which may have up to 30,000 facets. They can fly at speeds of up to 64-96 kph/40-60 mph.

Dragonflies hunt other insects by sight, both as adults and as aquatic nymphs. The largest species have a wingspan of 18 cm/7 in, but fossils related to dragonflies have been found with wings of up to 70 cm/2.3 ft across.

hi arif,
what a beauty this damselfly, captured very well. great details and colors. bit bolder would have been nice in a good composition. tfs.

Hello Arif,

Excellent capture of this beautiful damselfly. Excellent POV, DOF and focus. Great detail. Very good composition. Great exposure and colours.

This is a beauty, the pic is crystal clear and the expose is spot on. Here it goes into my favorites. I cant find a nit here.

Çok güzel çekim Arif, kutlarım dostum. Ancak bu bir Anisoptera (Tayyare böcekleri) örneği değil, bir Zygoptera (Yusufçuklar) örneği, yani ingilizcesi ile bir "Damselfly". Cinsine, türüne gelince, onu da uzmanlarına bırakmakta yarar var.

Witaj Arif,
impressive picture, perfect sharpness and colours,very good composition. Emerald gem of Nature...
TFS and best wishes

Tüm kadrajda bu kadar güzel netlik "pattern" netleme ile mi sağlanıyor hocam. üstelik f/4 de... nedir bu işi sırrı.
güzel paylaşımınız için teşekkürler...
