After long break I'm back at TN.
I'm starting with picture from the beginning of summer.
You can see here White-leg damesfly Platycnemis pennipes lying eggs.
As you can see the male is still holding the female waiting till the end of the process.

Platycnemis pennipes can be easily recognized among Polish damesflies by wide tibiae of second and third pair of legs. Tibiae are white with dark stripe along the middle. White-leg damesfly occurs from May till August.

Picture was cropped, changed levels and sharpen.

Thanks for viewing

Czesc Ania!

Swietne przypomnienie lata. Para pieknie uchwycona, obie wazki ostre i wyrazne, bardzo fajna kompozycja z rozmytymi falami na dole zdjecia. Akurat tego gatunku brakuje mi w mojej kolekcji, ale widze, ze calkiem niedaleko Lodzi wystepuje.

Hello Ania,
Welcome back!
Your image of this pair of Damselflies is just wonderful.
The male is holding the female to help her lay the eggs. The formation they make is very beautiful.
The image is technically outstanding with precise focus and pleasant colours.
Thanks and all the best.

Hello Ania,
this is a really beautiful picture with respect to composition and general design.
The colours and the reflectances on the water surface are very attractive and excellently captured.
Furthermore, you focused exactly on the damselfly couple.
Best wishes, Peter

naprawdę dobre zdjęcie Ci wyszło!
Nie tylko dlatego, że uchwyciłaś ciekawą scenkę ale też dlatego, że udało Ci się zachować wszelkie odcienie barw otoczenia i wody, szczególnie wody.

Hi ania,

great macro shot of this mating damselflys.
Beautiful colours.
I like the reflections and the little waves.


Hej Ania,
WOW! Znakomita fota, fantastyczne detale i kompozycja, nietypowa 'poza', cudne kolory i swiatlo, ladnie to wszystko wspolgra, naprawde super!
Gratuluje i pozdrawiam serdecznie,

Bonjour Ania.
Muy buena toma, bonita foto.Un daludo.

Czesc Aniu
Fotka bardzo mi sie podoba. moze bym tylko dal troche krotszy czas naswietlania bo sa lekkie przepalenia. Tlo jest idealnie rozmyte i bardzo mi sie podoba uklad swiatla i cieni na wodzie

Just wonderful, Ania,
they are like acrobats, I love these moments.
I also had the chance to see this a few times, always amazing. Very good quality in sharpness and colours, very well done
