Hello everbody!

I'd like to say thank you for each one about the critiques and nice words on my previous post.

I completly forgot that this one is my 100th post and our friends Hormon_Manyer and jignasi remembered me. Thanks guys!!!

To continue my Odonata series today I'll go with a Damselfly. I realy hope you like this one and as I always say....see you at TN!

Damselflies (suborder Zygoptera) are insects in the order Odonata. Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest. Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly broadens near the base, caudal to the connecting point at the body. Damselflies are also usually smaller, weaker fliers than dragonflies, and their eyes are separated.

Hello Fancisco,
the definition of the damselfly is very well done. The close up really shows the body and wings in full details.
The lines of colours of blue and green is very outstanding.
Excellent light control where you balance the tones in a good way.
An amazing creature well depicted in a sharp shot.
