[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Today I went to my sisters swimming pond and looked if there have already emerged any Dragon- or Damselflies. I have found a some newly emerged Damselflies and tried to take a picture of the Damselfly with its Exuvia. Finally I have found this one and after it have played hide and seek for a while, I could manage to get both together in the same focal plane. Unfortunately I don't have the ability to identify the species.



Heute ging ich an den Schwimmteich von meiner Schwester und suchte das Schilf nach Libellen ab. Ich fand dabei einige frisch geschlüpfte Kleinlibellen und versuchte die Libelle zusammen mit ihrer Exuvie ins Bild zu bekommen. Zu guter Letzt habe ich dann diese gefunden. Nachdem sie eine Weile Versteck mit mir gespielt hatte, schaffte ich es dann auch, sie beide zusammen in einer Schärfeebene abzulichten. Leider bin ich nicht in der Lage die Spezies zu identifizieren.

Ciao Helmut, interesting capture of lovely damselfly with its exuvia, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Very unique capture of the freshly emerged Damselfly with its casing, Helmut.
The fresh Damselfly looks really fragile and delicate in the picture.
