Hello my TN-friends.
Today your help is requested ...

added 18.01.09:
I'd like to say thanks to Harm for spending his time for the ID here. He told me: ID maybe Anisopleura sp.??(A.yunnanensis looks like this one but not for 100 %).
And belief me, I can't find a single photo of this specimen in the web - so perhaps I can be proud to post this one the first time here on TN - but without knowing definitely the exact ID, that's realy trashy!

We made a nice boat-trip on the Mekong near Luang Prabang. Suddenly this couple of golden demoiselles came to rest on our boat.
Sure - I had no macrolens with me - so I tried to get the best and that's the result, I'm happy with it.

And how happy I could be with knowing the name of these golden beauties. So I think here's the best place for informations - so many specialist on this forum ;-)

Thanks for and words and enjoy your weekend ...

Hello Sabine,
A fine close capture with your compact of a pair of mating 'river dragons' taken from a great POV with fine sharpness.
Though I don't know the ID, they look like a species of Gomphus, Clubtails.
Thanks and have a great weekend,

Hi Sabine,
Wonderful close-up shot of this beautiful dragonfly with amazing golden wings. Very impressive sharpness and clarity and you have handled the natural lighting pretty well here. Though I cannot give the proper ID I can enjoy this image to the fullest.

hello Wishnu
with very good details and sharpness
lovely colours
greeting lou

Perfect close-up of this couple(tandem) of Damselflies.
ID maybe Anisopleura sp.??(A.yunnanensis looks like this one but not for 100 %)). Maybe an expert of this region can tell us the correct name?
TFS Harm

Hallo Sabine,
Magnificent close up.Sharpness,colors,lighting and composition are wonderful.Excellent work!
Thanks for posting!

Hi Sabine, an impressive macro capture of this beautiful damselfly which it is also a novelty for me. Perfect macro in all around indeed.
TFS and cheers MF!

Hello Sabine,
And I would be also very happy with this golden couple.
The lighting is so good that the insect's wings looks great, not only in their structure details but also that amazing colour.
The bright part of the background help to define the head of the insect and its leg's tiny hairs.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hola Wishnu,
Fantástica macro de este bello odonato, la nitidez y detalle son extraordinarios, luz y color muy hermosos. Saludos
José Ramón

a perfect example of close-up photography without a macro lens! Was the animal really so honey-golden, or did you photoshop the photo?
