Friends, I still have quite a few dragonfly pictures in my archives, so here is another one of a Long-legged Marsh Glider.
Hope I am not taxing your patience!

(Kirby, 1889)


Name: Long-legged Marsh Glider

Scientific Name: Trithemis pallidinervis

Identificaton: This is a yellowish brown, medium sized dragonfly with noticeably long legs. The thorax has three black stripes on each side and the underside of the abdomen is black.

Trithemis pallidinervis is found in China, Indonesia, India, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Peninsular Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan.

I shot this one in Mumbai, India in September 2006.

Hello Ram,
Wonderful close up.POV,sharpness,colors,lighting,BG and composition are excellent.Have a great day!

Hello Ram,
Nice work on this classic pose. Composition, sharpness, exposure are great. Also vivid colors. Well done and TFS.

Hello Ram,
Nice shot! Very classic I would say, but this kind of POV and framing always works well with dragonfly pictures. Details are a little soft but that's nothing serious. I like colours and quite clear BG.

Hi Ram
Perfect focusing and colors,
Very nice composition,Excellent.


Hi Ram,
the colours are vivid and very nice.
Good details and POV. I like the shallow DOF too, the dragonfly stand out well from the blurred BG.
Well done.

Hello Ram,
Good point of view and some fine details are captured!
I like this composition, classical but still working...
Skillful macro work!

Hello Ram,
Super sharp capture of this dragonfly, the green blotchy BG adding a nice touch and the soft wings giving it a fairy-like feel.
TFS this from your archives.
Best wishes, Ivan

Hi Ram,
Beautiful shot with very nice colours and excellent POV. I think it may be a bit UE [or I'm seeing things] but in a way that helps saturate the colours.

Hi, Ram.
Nice macro. Very good pose and POV. Sharp. Good peaceful background.

Bonjour Ram
Félicitations pour la qualité d'image et l'éclairage qui fait bien ressortir les détails.Bravo pour le BG qui est très joli.
Merci pour l'envoie et au revoir .....JP

Hola Ram,

Hi Ram,
A really wonderful pov and a lovely green background. Composition is great!
TFS, José M.

Hi Ram.
I never tire of seeing great dragonfly shots. This one is excellent. Well composed and framed in the classic dragonfly pose. The colors are well saturated and beautiful. Good detail and the control on the DOF to create the OOF backround is excellent. A Nice One!

Hi Ram,
Nice DoF, sharp on body and head.
Neat blurry BG.
Very nice shot.

Hi Ram,

Hello Ram,
How have you been? It's been a while. :-)
I always welcome dragonflies photos. Actually, I'd like to see Trithemis spp. by naked eyes. I might be there in the fufure. :-)
Nice details and great pose, lovely colours.
Best regards,

Hello Ram,
I like this great POV and colors here! This is a nice typical pose from this beautiful Dragonfly. I'm always amazed by people who can capture them as I never succeed yet. I think this is very difficult to achieve. Details are overall very good. Well done and this specie is a real colorful beauty :-) Thanks,

¡¡Wooow!! Hermosa libélula con magnífica definición. La luz con que la captaste fabulosa.
Un saludo, JL.
