Do you like my posing? Is it well this way?
Can you see all details of my impressive side-view?

I am Gomphi - a Western Club-tail - Gomphus pulchellus / Le gomphe gentil / Plasrombout / Westliche Keiljungfer
a species of dragonfly in the family Gomphidae.
I will be found in Europe.
I'm up to 50 mm long.
My natural habitat are clean ponds and canals and during a sunny day I prefer to sit in the grass as a good protection because of my green colour.

I'm flying from May to August - and in that time Sabine is visiting me with her camera at the weekends whenever the sun is shining.
So poor she only had the chance to come 2 times this year, there was so much rain in May and June, there only were 2 warm and sunny weekends during that time - that weather in 2010 is so bad ...

So I hope you all have better weather to visit my relatives in your countries ...
Enjoy the summer ...

Warm regards from Gromphi ...
(and also from Sabine)

Hello Sabine,
another exciting close up of this amazing dragonfly. The sharpness and the features are well shown in excellent details.
This is a true view and it is so stunning!


hallo sabine,
ja wir haben sonne...da hast du wieder ein hammerbild eigestellt, klasse...vielen dank...

Hallo Sabine,

ein wirklich schönes Bild, mit sehr schönen warmen Farben! Gefällt mir sehr gut!

Bei uns ist es auch recht kalt, doch die Sonne hat es noch nicht aufgegeben. Doch von Sommer kann dieses Jahr mit den 3 zweiachtel Tagen Sonne noch nicht die Rede sein ;O/

Hello Sabine,
Beautiful close macro portrait in fantastic sharpness, details and natural colours. Good POV and composition.

great closeup, greetings Ori

Wow, that litle guy has a beautiful eye! and so do you, Sabine! Great macro! TFS!


A fantastic extreme macro shot with your signature just everywhere, Sabine! Great detail, powerful warm colors and pleasant composition. Seems that your Tamron 90mm macro lens is a truly legendary piece of glass! Bravo!

Ciao Sabine, fantastic portrait of dragonfly with splendid eye, superb detaoils and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hola Sabine

Gracias por tu comentario.

Creo que esta si que es una buena imagen, con gran cantidad de detalles, cada vez que vemos estos insectos tan cerca, dan miedo, son pequeños mostruos, pero que bonitos al mismo tiempo originales, con unos coloridos y tonos fuera de serie.

Una imagen estupenda, gracias por compartir. Un saludo de Antonio

A superb close-up of this Gomphus pulchellus taken with fine sharpness and colours for us to see ALL the details clearly from this lateral POV. I could guess this was your when Isaw the thumnail.

Liebe Sabine,
Lese gerade, dass es euch nicht anders geht als uns..wir warten noch immer auf den Sonnenschein. Hast wenigsten Gomphi getroffen mit seinen schönen blaugrünen Augen :-). Man hat wirklch das Gefühl, dass er uns anguckt.
Beste Bildschärfe und eine ungewöhnliche Ansicht. Gut gemacht, wie immer.
Einen schönen Sonntag wüncht Dir
PS vorhin ein Sonnenstrahl, dauerte ein Paar Sekunden. Vielleicht bessert's jetzt wirklich

Hi Sabine

Well I don't think anyone can rubbish Tamron lenes after seeing this stunning macro.The details and sharpness is as good as anything I've seen. Excellent work.


Hi Wishnu,
Great macro of this what looks like a monster from the deep.Talk about eye contact well this is what it is about, well done.

Hi Sabine.
I am glad to watch next your ultimate close-up. Simply great sharpness of the insect. Wonderful vivid colours and blameless composition. Exposure parameters and flash work are the best I think. All my compliments and best wishes.

It is a perfect pose Sabine! And the details are just fantastic. Perfect!
Kind regards,

Greet Sabine.
Excellent macro, colours as well as sharpness first class. This fascinating that we can execute as well as look at from world picture in which it is to discovery yet so many.
I greet Robert.

Hallo Sabine,
a superb portrait of the Western Club-tail, outstanding sharpness with incredible detail, splendid bright colours with perfect exposure, i like this aggressive close composition.
Best regards
