[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I have a two for one sort of photo to offer.The yellow flower you see in this image is a water plant very orchid like in appearance known as a Bladderwort and resting on it is a damselfly which may very well have been hatched and grown in the very water the flower grows in.

The photo was shot in Av mode @ f/8 with an ev of -1 using spot metering.

I hope you enjoy this image as I must get on with some replies and critiques in return.

Very nice picture Bob. Excellent result, you controlled perfectly the hard light and the shadows in the same scenary. The "Lestes" is perfect in sharpness. Also good composition.
Congratulation and thanks for sharing it.

hello Bob,
une bonne prise sur ce couple fleur et Agrion.
il me semble que c'est un agrion elegant que je peux aussi voir chez nous.
Bonne journée
