A photo in wonderful clarity and very beautiful light and colours. Impressive sharpness, details, DOF and composition. A beauty!
Have a nice sunday,
Superb capture, up to your high standard in every way!
But this is not fonscolombii!
The totally red veins and the larger black markings make this the Red-veined Dropwing (Trithemis artiosa).
Jag har redan packad min trollsländabok men jag vet hur fonscolombii ser ut.
Ha det bra!

Nice work with your Sony A55 and Tamrom lens!... I like a lot the natural ligth and how youve archieved excellent details on fragonfly body and wings... I think you've manage the DOF like a master!

I watch your use of Sony cameras with great interest (as a former owner of Minolta 7D and present owner of all my Minolta lenses). I like delicate colour transitions, crisp sharp details of the dragonfly and wonderful pleasant neutral smooth BG. Direct POV and cropping of the image are excellent too. My kind regards and warm greetings in these rather cold days.
