Heidelibelle! Ja das ist Deine Spezialität und auch liebste Motiv, ist nichts auszusetzen sie ist ach wunderschön. Dein Makro zeigt uns die Details im kopf und Augen bereich ausgezeichnet. Schärfe, kontrast, presentation, beleuchtung, farben und Untergrund alles auf punkt.Grüße Siggi
a very nice picture of this darter.
The exposure are very good and the sharpness too but I think the DOF is a bit odd, F16 with a 90mm macro lens should even the feet had been in focus.
Lovely colours and a nice POV.
Well done, my friend.

Very fine close capture of this female Flame-winged Darter taken from a great POV with excellent sharpness in a fine composition. She does look like she is wearing sunglasses!

I'm jelauos, that you'll see insects in april :-) In our region we'll probably wait little longer. Great supermacro of dragon's eyes. Razor sharp details and very well taken natural colours. I like diagonal POV also. Excellent photo in short.

A great macro shot, nice POV, beautiful wings and eyes, perfect colors....
du bist deinen Lieblingsobjekten treu! Dieses Liebellen-Porträt ist gelungen mit gut gewähltem Ausschnitt
und dem Fokus auf den imposanten Augen so dass man sogar deren Feinstruktur erahnen kann.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Another wonderful dragonfly shot from you and again a terrific macro!
Now that i have my own true macro lens, i hope that i will also be able to create such excellent close-ups on this beautiful creatures, so that i, too, would be able to analyze such amazing geometry in their eyes :)
Very good POV and DOF chosen here, great fill-in flash work and lovely colors everywhere.
Good luck finding more macro subjects in Thailand, but i also hope you'll find time to join us on the nice TN meeting we are trying to set up :)
Cheers and TFS

Ciao Sabine, fantastic closeup of a beautiful dragonfly, superb details of composite eyes, wonderful light and colors, splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
Interessante und originelle Gestaltung Deines Bildes. Schöne Augen hat sie ja, Deine thailändische Libelle. Mir gefällt auch speziell die Transparenz der Flügel; interessant auch die verschiedenen geometrischen Formen auf den Flügeln.
Ich wünsche noch eine schöne Reise morgen. Meine Reise nach München werde ich wahrscheinlich verschieben müssen, habe noch einige Probleme mit Schwindelanfällen.

It was a good idea to dive into your archives and to show us this beauty! Hmm, next time tell him to take off his sunglasses in order to show us all of his beautiful eyes...!

I like dragonflies. They are large and somewhat easy to capture. But you've taken it up a couple of levels, Sabine. I like the XCU of the mid-section here, recorded on a nice diagonal with great details in the eys, mid-section, and wings even. Well done again, Sabine.

When are you coming to Thailand?

It's not Sympetrum flaveolum. Only Sympetrum species recorded in Thailand is S. hypomelas. But your photo is "Diplacodes trivialis", a common lowland species found throughout the country.
