Nice shot. One day I'll get round to posting something of the Odonata. But I have the same trouble with identifications...
Thanks for your dedication which I don't deserve! I did say it COULD be S. flaveolum so it was only a guess! The ID is quite clear here thanks to Joe! Even though this capture is not quite sharp I prefer it to the previous one. Well done!
TFS and kind regards, Ulla

Wow! Thankyou so much! This is very kind of you!
The frontal POV is very good and offers a different view to yesterday.
Th colours are very nice and vivid.
Excellent DOF and BG.
Slightly OOF but I think it could easily be sharpened up in photoshop.
Well done my friend!
Obviously one for my favourites :)

What a spectacular Darter is this Ram, almost as big as the frame, with its characteristic coloration and huge eyes! Thanks for the "double-take" friend.

It is the "full facial" shot which pops up so often giving the Darter an actual personality. Just as some people tend to like one side of the face or other of their portraits, this one appears to like it from a lightly more straight on..and yous potted that well Ram.

I missed this fine image of a Red-veined darter. I like the POV where you captured the front part of the darter with good sharpness and the salient features of the species are well seen here.
Nice composition and lighting with a pleasing contrasting OOF natural BG too.
Thanks for sharingthis beauty,
All the best, Ivan
