Hello my friends,
of course it's not a dragonfly from Asia - but her eyes remembered me a little ot the eyes in Asia.
Say I'm crazy!

This one is again a very friendly Common Darter, Sympetrum striolatum.
She let me come so near and had no problems with my flash.
I think she felt like a model because she was sitting there so decorative ;-)

Hi Sabine,
Very nice eye wiht good details and nice colours.
Well composed and good POV.
I think I will have to wait to the summer for new "Eyes".
Very well done, my friend.

... she's got a charming smile, too. But she did not shave her moustache. Let's stop joking: Sabine, this is another very well taken close up with amazingly fine details. Very rich colours within the limited spectre of brown shadows. Thank you!

Great macro, Sabine! Excellent detail on the eyes.

Ja Sabine, macht aber nichts!!.ggg....
Das Macro ist aber supi. Gegen Deine Libellenfotos komme ich mit meinen nicht an. Da zeigt sich auf jeden Fall die Stärke der Canon mit dem Tamron. Also, ganz dickes Lob für Deine Makros - immer gestochen scharf und farblich hervorragend.

Hello Sabine!
Wonderful close up.POV,details,sharpness,
framing and composition are wonderful.

This must be a very relaxed dragonfly, as some of the best close ups I remember in TN are from different members but the same specie :D
This is also a very good one. Thanks for not oversharpen, it is a temptation in this compound eyes. Regards for you 2

Fantastic macro! The details of your macro are always beautiful!
Bye Tom
