[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Summer ended suddenly as always. Days are shorter and shorter, clouds, rain, cold nights. There are almost no insects arounds. Time to prepare for darkest days in year. Time to prepare my aquarium with flora and fauna from local ponds - the only thing which helps me to survive winter.

This Sympetrum sp. was taken during hot days of August. Its golden-brown-yellow colour scheme is perfect for late autumn in my place.

Exceptional macro image Grzegorz!!
The detail is very fine and the colors are very natural looking. Perfectly exposed with great DOF and excellent exposure!! Loves those big Eyes!

Hello Greg,
you are right, the days are shorter and shorter with bad light,
and the snow and cold are around the corner.
Surviving the long winter? we have differnt wasy to do it.
I use to build a hide and feed the birds but not this year.
We will take a long (2 months) trip to Cyprus to escape from the cold winter. :-)
About the picture. A nice and decent close-up with good sharpness. Well exposed with fine and natural colours.
Nice work. old friend.
Greetings to Joanna and Jr.

Stunned, that's what you've made me feel.
I have no words to describe this, Grzegorz.

Hi Greg

Nice to finally see another post from you, my friend. I hope you've been well :)
You mentioned some time ago that you might post a d-fly that you found as new for your nice Botanic garden...but i don't think this is it. This looks to be a Sympetrum vulgatul due to its yellow stripe from the legs and the longer black patches on the nose that come down parallel to the eyes.
Anyway, this is a lovely close-up from you, with plenty of DOF to help us enjoy all the little details of this darter.
The details are pin sharp and the light and colors are lovely, too.
Great work, mate!

Bravo and TFS
