[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The moment is special, very difficult of being witnessed therefore occurs to the night but this dragonfly delayed the sufficient so that of morning, I witnessed its metamorphosis. He is 2 hours observing, until it flied for another place. I consider a privilege of the nature to grant this chance to me.

Wow ! What a wonderful and interesting metamorphose that you have well captured ! I also appreciate the complementary note... Congratulations Paulo and thanks for sharing this great moment.

As you say Paulo a rare capture the almost see through body is great, not the sharpest image but well woth posting, it could be that you used too higher F stop maybe around F8.0 would of been better as it would of allowed a faster shutter speed and I think a sharper image. I have only wittnessed it once and it is worth the wait to watch. TFS yours Robert

Hola Paulo, una imagen captada en un momento sumamente especial, me recordó inmediatamente una imagen publicada por Mogens Jorgensen (mogens-j) el año pasado "Welcome to the World"


Impresionante, felicitaciones, gracias por compartirla. Me gusta mucho la luminosidad del fondo y su efecto. Me fascinan las libélulas y ver a través de tu imagen esto es para mi muy muy especial, gracias. La agregaré al tema de Odonatas y a mi favorita. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*
