This picture I took in my backgarden. I realy was impressed by this circus act.
I like those insectts, they realy act like artists.

As far as I know these are:

Calopteryx virgo meridionalis (ovipositing female)
English name: Beautiful Demoiselle (mediterranean subspecies)
Dutch name: Bosbeekjuffer (zuidelijke ondersoort)

Nice shot Hendrik!
You had luck to capture all three at the same time.
The photo is very good, has great POV and composition. Details are not bad, but it seems to be a bit overexposed. I have only impression that the black frame would look better.
Overall, very interesting photo.

ze zijn allen goed in pov Hendrik.
mooie triootje, ja de dof is natuurlijk niet veel, maar het gaat om ze alledrie scherp in beeld te krijgen en dat is je zeker gelukt.

Hy Hendrik,
gratulations, you had much luck catching 3 of this beautiful dragonflys with such good sharpness.
The only thing I don't like so much is the big blue frame. - The insects are so filigree, that don't fit together.
But anyway, a perfect photo, I like it, bye
