Hello TN-friends,

look what I captured this morning ...
This nice damselfly eclosed 3 hours ago in my tiny garden-pond. The shot of the "full-grown" damsel is only 1 hour old - and isn't it amazing to know, that it is flying around and enjoying new life right now while you are looking?!?

Than I went to my PC very quick to present you the freshes News from my garden ;-)

But there's again one of my biggest problems ...
How do you all name damselflies?
They change the colours in the first hours and I already can see that it is a blue one.
IMO it is Coenagrion puella.
Azure damselfly / Hufeisen-Azurjungfer / Agrion jouvencelle / Azuurwaterjuffer.

I realy don't know where to look to see the difference between them all.

So thank you all for looking, telling me if I'm right with the name and any words for this post.

If you are interested how it looks like when a damsel is slipping out - step by step - please click here and here.

Enjoy your day - with sunshine and pretty subjects for nice shots ...

Hallo Sabine,
Diese Geburt sieht ein wenig mühsam aus! Du bringst uns ein einmaliges Bild mit dieser sehr speziellen Darstellung des Schlüpfens einer Libelle. Sehr gut fotografiert und hochinteressant..auch zu wissen, dass ihre Farbe so schnell sich verändert.
Bravo und herzlichen Dank
PS war gestern mit Dieter(meyerd) an einem magischen Ort voller leuchtenden Alpenblumen

Hello Sabine,
Wonderful moment in the life of this damselfly. ou were there on the right place in the right time. Excellent sharpness, details, colours and composition.

Dear Sabine,
I would be envious of the 'wildlife' in your pond (too hot and dry here in Hoedspruit), if I was not moving next month to Tzaneen at the edge of a dam...

Nature is fascinating indeed, and I am grateful to you for showing the 'secrets' on TrekNature.

The details are very interesting thanks to your sharp focus e.g. the tiny claws, and the golden colour really surprising.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday - I hope you are not getting flooded also!

Herzliche Gruesse von SuedAfrika

But, of course you are always offering new surprises :-)

hello Sabine

excellent and beautiful photo of these insetcs, shot with fine POV
and the way diagonally they are framed, also it is great the
tight framing (or cropping), superbly focused with great
sharpness and details, wonderful luminosity, TFS


I love short lived moments captured on camera like this one, Sabine! Certainly you have been there in the right moment my friend and the result is spectacular!! Bravo! Another great presentation fill with dynamism and tons of detail!! Good job Sabine good job indeed!

Hi Sabine. This is a first class close up show the new Damselfly . Also with the insect when out and changing colour. All taken with fine detail and sharp focusing. Your use of the light has given bright colours. This shows how wonderful the internet can be so you can show this just after it happened. Well taken TFS.

Hello Sabina,

good pov and detailed picture from this Dragonfly.
Fine colours.
You know I give no more points? I am againgst the sysem for a long time.
I am a gone while from tn because that reason.
If you have and bad picture but much time to give (much) positive critiques you get many points but if you have no time, you get no points or very litlle poins.
There for in my topic asking for no points and write also i will give no more critiques.

Hello Sabine,
What a brilliant macro of a freshly emerging damselfly! Fantastic timing and sharp details of its struggles to get out of its case! Nice to see the fully developed specimen as well but I won't try to guess its ID - I find these little ones really difficult too! Very well done!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Excelente documento Wishnu, además con una luz muy conseguida a pesar de la corta distancia del punto de disparo. Buen enfoque y acertado formato.

A superb contribution Sabine!

It is rare to see a damsel fly like this Coenagrion, emerging from its nymphal case. You took this event with your high macro skills. The lateral POV, the sharpness and lightingar are excellent. Great to be able to photograph this in your garden!
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Sabine,

auch dieses Bild ist wirklich gelungen!
Libellen jagen geht derzeit nicht deswegen suche ich z.Z. eher die Pflanzen als Motiv.
Mal sehen was das WE bringt ;O)

Hallo Sabine.
Fantastisch, das ist wunderbare Situation die Du vor der Linse bekommen hast. Eine sehr ausführliche Abbildung. Liebe Grüße Siggi

Hi Sabine,

The branch is framing well the insects. The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the damsefly. It is clear and precise. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
