Hello Peter,
I never tire of saying that you now combines art with visual efficiency extremely well. This POV is great and makes the structure of the insect "evolve" very well in the photographic plane. The light has an ideal balance. The background is a poem! .. What are these blurred points of light? ... Is dew on some branches? TFS, regards, Jesús

Hello Peter,
Excellent focus on this wonderful dragonfly that I hope to see here soon. I like its pose on the twig, the clear details of the wings and the background with light reflections from the water. Lovely colours too and well composed.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Fine colours.

Hallo Peter,
Deine männliche Plattbauch ist wundervoll.
Sie sonnt sich so schön auf dem Schilfrohr.
Erstklassig fotografiert, gefällt mir sehr.
Leider habe ich schon Jahre keine Plattbauchlibelle mehr gesehen, aber letztes WE konnte ich zum ersten Mal eine Königslibelle fotografieren, Männchen und Weibchen, es war wirklich besonders für mich, denn bisher hab' ich noch niemals eine dieser Riesen sitzend vorgefunden.
Lieben Dank für Deine Schönheit hier, Gruß

Lieber Peter,
Ein perfektes Libellenbild zeigst Du uns hier. Bildschärfe und Komposition auf höchstem Niveau und was mir am besten gefällt sind diese subtilen Farben, die sich perfekt ergänzen. Bravo!
Herzlich grüsst
Anne
PS das Wetter scheint sich endlich zu bessern wollen, nach zwei Monaten fast nur schlechten Witterung.
