Dragonfly from Sulawesi, Indonesia

This picture is dedicated to Anne ‚anel’ and is a reminder of our common visit of the Moosalpe in Switzerland together with Dietrich ‘meyerd’ in the last year.
At this nice place, we observed hundreds or even thousands of dragonflies and could take numerous pictures of them and also of many butterflies.

The species shown is
- Diplacodes trivialis
- family: Libellulidae

It is not restricted to Sulawesi but is common in South-East Asia.

- Indonesia, Sulawesi-Tenggara, about 20 km east of Kolaka
- vegetation at a rivulet emerging from the forest

Hello Peter,
A very fine macro of this species of dragonfly.
The lateral POV is great and taken with excellent sharpness with the focusing where it should be to provide a nice OOF natural BG that emphasises the main subject.
Thanks and kind regards,

Ciao Perter, lovely dragonfly on a beautiful blurry BG, splendid light, wonderful natural colors, excellent sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hello Peter
Impressive photo!! The composition, the colours and the sharpness are excellent. Interesting species too.

Hello Peter,
SUPER!! What I like most of this image, apart from the very good detail and definition, is that it shows a natural environment. Well done indeed.
