Très belle demoiselle libellule. Chez nous elles ne sont pas non plus très répandues. Par contre j'en ai vu plus en France.
Félicitations pour ta première "capture"
Bonne soirée

I have never seen such beautiful irridescent colors on a damselfly. Absolutely wonderful. Superb details of the entire insect - the wings are magnificent. An excellent diagonal composition.

Hi Silvio,
Wonderful shot of this damselfly with such amazing electric colours and sharp details. The bright natural lighting makes it glow. Nice pose captured among the greens. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Silvio,
This is the Beautiful Demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo) male. I just post the female. You can see it here. And it is still a juvenile, because his wings are not yet dark blue.
Your photo is very beautiful, with great sharpness and a good management of light. Congratulations,

Quindi è un "damigello" superavariopinto. Bella texture delle ali e splendidi riflessi.


Hi Silvio,

Excellent capture with great composition, nice pose and POV, sharp details, very good lighting and BG, natural bright colours.

Hello Silvio,

Sorry no time, only marking.

Just perfect, from every viewpoint of fine macro-photography Silvio, thank you indeed my friend, for sharing this masterpiece with us.

Bellissima macro, ottimi POV, DOF e composizione, molto buona la nitidezza, magnifici i colori. L'ho fotografata più volte e il maschio che fotografo io ha le ali bleu scuro, forse è un'altra specie di calopterigidi. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Silvio,
A fine capture of a male C. virgo, your first damselfly, which is an excellent start for this group of insects.
Superb POV, sharpness and composition against a fine contrasting OOF green BG to give the image great colours.
Well done my friend and TFS this beauty,
