[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Before going to the south of france this time I had never seen such an insect before, like a cross between a flutterby and a dragonfly, but during this trip I found a lot of them. Only in the evening they stayed still enough to shoot easily,

Enjoy your weekend

PDC est remarkable, la lumière est efficace, .. mais les parties jaunes opaques sur les ailes semblent avoir souffert de l''exces de lumière, .. globalement cette prise semble bien réussie

bien à vous

Hallo Jeroen,
Uitstekend scherp gedetailleerde foto in prachtige kleuren.
Grapje in je noot?: flutterby :-)
Zie je zo,

This winged insect is a novelty for me too, Jeroen.
You have done a marvellous job of capturing it from dorsal point of view.
Every feature of this subject is well captured and the plain BG makes it stand out beautifully.
