Very good DOF and details!
Very good BG too!

Hi Jitty, nice to meet you :)
What I find more fascinating of this predation scenes of damselflies, is the feline attitude.
They always go for the neck, as the felines do with their preys. I like very much to get them in this moment, which is not very easy, as they are alert so other insects dont come to steal the prey. Yo got a great series of this scene, all of the 3 shots you posted are very interesting and descriptive, I never saw canibalism here.
You can see the ones I posted HERE, HERE and HERE.
Best regards, Felipe.

Excellent series, Jitti. Good sharpness and DOF with only the tail going slightly outside the DOF range.
This series shows very well just HOW fast a damselfly will loose its colour once it's dead.

Great image of this "Embrace of Death", JC!
Superb composition with the predator, the victim and the green twig on which the drama of existence is being enacted.
