A warm hello to you all - yes, it's me, Sabine,
after a long break here at TN.
I'm happy to see you and all your wonderful shots again here.
My archive is full and so it will be a pleasure for me to share my work again with you.

To have the "eye-contact" with you I decided to start with this cute Ivory white-legged damselfly (Platycnemi latipes).
This guy was looking so curious into my lens and seems to smile.

Enjoy your day ...

Liebe Sabine,
Habe ich doch gerade vor einigen Tagen an dich gedacht und auch auf TE nachgeschaut, ob Du noch publizierst..Grosse Freude wieder ein Bild von Dir zu sehen,und zwar ein eindrückliches, wie wir von Dir gewohnt sind. Der Kerl schaut und ja auch direkt in die Augen!
Freue mich, dass Du wieder regelmässig auf TN sein wirst, die Worte werden wie von selbst wieder zurückkehren..:-)
War auch nicht in München, wie geplant, da ich in gesundheilicher Hinsicht auch ein schlechtes Jahr hatte.
Schicke recht liebe Grüsse und hoffe auf bald. Alles Liebe

Great macro,beautifull colours and a verrry interesting face.Best regards.Alin.

Superb maro capture of the damselfly in action, Sabine!

I like the great POV - 'face to face' and the well maintained DOF.
The colors are perfectly natural and well shown.

Viele Grüße,

Hello Sabine,

Your green little friend looks fabulous!
But I'm not sure I quite like the look in his face, maybe he is hungry..?
A great macro with lovely colours!

Hallo Sabine
Wow this is really a great macro. Amazing colours and very pleasant light. Marvellously blurred background, which emphasize this insects beautiful details. Just love the composition bringing the subject so close to the eye. This way one can observe and appreciate the finer details even better. A beautiful photo from your lens, and well presented close-up. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Sabine,
This is an amazing shot!
What an unusual POV. Up close and personal.

Ciao Wishnu. Indeed impressive/expressive face to face in excellente bright colours and stunning details on eyes texture. Best compliments an have a nice WE.


Hi Wishnu,

The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the head of the Ivory white-legged damselfly. It is well framed. The blurred backgrouns is putting in evidence the foreground. The light has a good effect on the colors. have a nice day.


Beautiful ...
