Hello Joe,
A really fine shot of this Damsel in an upright position. All sharply in focus showing great details and nice colours. Beautiful light background too and an excellent composition. Well done!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Superior Sharpnes and details.



Hello Joe
Excellent shot ofthis wonderful Damselfly,
Perfect details,composition and BG,
Fantastic colors and POV,Superb shot,friend.

Good Luck

Great focus - wonderful details. You get right in there! That's wonderful.

Joe, this is one of the best Damselfly shots I have seen. Even the more remarkable in that you aren't using a DSLR. Your Canon S3 IS did a nice job, or should I say you used the tool very well.



Hi Joe,
Excellent POV and beautiful subject. Very sharp focus. Very good capture. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Joe,
Very nice capture of this damselfly with a good POV, focus, color, composition and lighting. TFS

We must stop meeting like this!:-)

A beautiful color on this damselfly. Looks like a sharkskin dinner jacket I used to wear. It certainly must be his evening wear, contrasted nicely with the green.


La demoiselle et son support sont parfaits...rien à dire.
Bonne journée.
