A wonderful capture of this interesting Damselfly in a beautiful pose. Excellent focus on the eye, great sharpness and beautiful colours against a lovely background! Unusual to see dark wingtips on a Damselfly!
Many thanks and best regards, Ulla
what an almost perfect picture.
Maybe a little more dof at end of the body.

I've never seen this specie in my life. Beautifull. I like its eyes, light stripe on body and dark tips of wings. Perfect composition and brownish colours of BG. Congratulations for capturing this rare insect.

This is indeed Beautiful!!
I never got the chance to see a damselfly from the Epallage genus, but i'm sure that it will be a special moment - just as it was for you.
This species is, simply put, gorgeous - with its shape, lines, colors and natural contrast - it stands out so beautiful on her own. Aside that, you also managed to "place" it on a great, uniform BG that sets it off even better.
The lighting is great, the composition terrific and the presentation, top class.
Very well done!
Bravo and TFS

I start to look up your Turkey treasures--really impressive! You did an excellent job technically, but on the entomology side (note!) too. I have a hard time with ID from Turkish specimens. Thanks for this one, Catherine.

pov non dei piu' semplici,dove la lente ha
lavorato molto bene perdendo solo la parte terminale delle ali e del torace
la specie e' decisamente bella e mai vista
prima d'ora e la macro con questo Bg neutro
la rende un gioiellino a ricordo del tuo viaggio in Turchia
grazie buon w.end sERGIO

Great shot of this damselfly heading downward. Incredible detail - and colors are so complementary. I love these creatures and never tire of photographing them, but have nothing spectacular yet :) Thanks for sharing this!
