[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Beautiful Demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo) is a European damselfly. It is often found among fast-flowing waters.
The male has dark brown-black wingtips with blue veins. Immature insects often have much paler, browner wings. They have metallic blue-green bodies and blue-green eyes.

The female has dark brown iridescent wings, a white patch near the tip of the wings and a metallic green body with a bronze tip of the abdomen.

Hello Joska,
A very fine capture of a male Calopteryx virgo taken from a fine POV with excellent sharpness, colours and lighting against a neutral natural BG in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and best regards,

Salut Joska,
Superbe detalii si culori la o specie pe care extrem de rar am intalnit-o dar care urmareste toate cursurile de apa....
Aceasta ofera o abundenta de nuante extraordinare (in aripi)pe care ai reusit perfect sa le arati in aceast cadru.
Detaliile sunt impresionante!

Bonjour Szabo,
Une grande réalisation et une prise de vue comme on aimerait en faire.
Netteté, Couleurs, Lumičre, composition ... une grande image.
Je la conserve dans mes images favorites ainsi que le photographe de cette image.

Hi Jozsef,
