[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

After my previous posting of the whole death scene, I also want to give you a close-up view with more details of the Dragonfly.



Nach meinem gestrigen Posting von der ganzen Todesszene, möchte ich heute auch noch die Nahansicht posten, in der man noch mehr Details der Libelle sehen kann.

Hello Helmut,

It's definitely over for that poor dragonfly! Fantastic macro with impressive focus - the individual eye lenses are almost countable. Also,a perfect POV for the viewer to witness this spectacle of nature.
