Hello friends in TN.

This little damselfly was captured during lunch break today.

Both dragonflies and damselflies belong to the Odonata, which is a subgroup of insects, which in turn is a group of uniramian arthropods. Many characteristics distinguish Odonata from other groups of insects -- minute antennae, extremely large eyes (filling most of the head), two pairs of transparent membranous wings with many small veins, a long slender abdomen, an aquatic larval stage (nymph) with posterior tracheal gills, and a prehensile labium (extendible jaws underneath the head). Among living Odonata, there are twenty-five families, mostly dragonflies and damselflies. Of all their characteristics, the easiest way to tell a dragonfly or damselfly from other insects is by the size of the eyes and shape of the abdomen. If the eyes are very large in proportion to the head and the abdomen is long and thin, then it is almost sure to be in Odonata.

Salam Jusni
wow...the shallow depth really give a wonderful effect on the focused areas.
Superb parallel plane to give the sharpness especially the top image.
Well composed with the leaf slant.

Hello Jusni,
I'm viewing your photo this evening while it's snowing outside. I can hardly wait for the weather to get nice again, so I too can photograph insects like this little beauty.
The top image gives us a great look at his entire body while the bottom photo allows us to see his facial features in fine detail. Well done!!

Hello Jusni
Beautiful photos with very good composition, wonderful colours and good sharpness.
