Lestes dryas, female (Scarce Emerald Damselfly)
Lestes is a genus of damselfly in family Lestidae. The family hold their wings at about 45 degrees when resting instead of 90 degrees (parallel to each other) as is most common with damselflies.

Hi Leonid,

A good macro with good sharpness and DOF,pov is well chosen and it is shot against a nice almost clean OOF BG,thanks and have a pleasant weekend


Hallo Leonid
Great macro captured in an aerial view. This way one can distinctly see the size of the wings, as well as the body length of this beautiful damselfly. The metallic colour of the insect’s body shows of well against the green background. Details of the wings are captured well and are clearly seen. I like the darker part on each wing. It stands out like a bold font on a typed document. Very prominent indeed. Have a relaxing weekend.
Kind regards
