"Sorry - forgot shaving today - anyway, please kiss me ..."

Hello everybody,
this lovely Club-tail realy seems to invite us for a smacker with these big "lips".

It is a Western Club-tail / Gomphus pulchellus / Westliche Keiljungfer.
She was very friendly to let me come so close ...

Thanks for looking and any words

Hello Sabine,
Fantastc macro in excellent sharpness and details. Great frontal POV. Beautiful colours. Very nice OOF BG.

this one is UGLY, but the picture you made is awesome in focus and colors, maybe a bit too bad that it's one knee fell off the bottom of the picture

Awesome shot
