Wonderful sharp details, lovely colors, good capture.

Hi Karel,
Excellent macro with nice details and colours..



Hello Karel!
Nice capture of dragonfly with good DOF and colouration.
Anyway, the correct name for this species is Ophiogomphus cecilia (Fourcroy 1785), O. serpentinus is a junior synonim of it :>
Greetings from Poland,
