Beautiful Demoiselle male
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|After the 1st image this morning (Clich Here To Veiw), here is the 2nd image from Switzerland, we all went for a walk up a hill on the far side of winterthur today just for a little gentle exercise after sitting in the car for so long. On top after the vine yards is a Forrest with paths though it much used by walker runners and general sightseers of this beautiful area.|
One of the paths had a stream running along side with a few small ponds where it had been dammed , in one of these were 2 male Beautiful Demoiselleflies completing for it as territory in which to breed with any females who came by.
This one decided to take a rest and settled on this leaf allowing me to take a few pictures. not the brightest picture because the sun was behind clouds at the time, but it was one I did not have any images of at all so had to try.
Hope you like the beasties appearing from CH (Switzerland) so far ;0))

A beauty Robert.
Excellent capture and well done on the composition and details.
Hi Robert. I think I'd drop the DOF to give yourself more play with the shutter speed here. Your exposure though is spot on resulting in stunning colours. Great composition too. It looks like you are having a fantastic holiday resulting in fantastic images - keep 'em coming and enjoy yourself! TFS :)

Is she ready to go to the dance? she look so pretty with her long dress. :) Great colours, contrast and details. Very well captured. Well done, TFS
I love the contrasts of colors and textures here, Robert. The deep tones found in the insect are very lovely to me. Super use of depth of field to set the insect apart from its surroundings.
