[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Blue Featherleg is a fairly large damselfly. It's a very common and widespread species throughout Europe except in Iberia (where it is replaced by the White and Orange Featherlegs) and parts of the British Isles and Scandinavia. Characteristically for the species in this genus, male Platycnemis pennipes have wide, white shins (especially in the subspecies P. p. nitidula). The male abdomen is a pale blue. Females are a creamy white which with time darkens to become orangey brown. Other distinguishing features include the male's blue eyes, the double antehumeral stripes and the uniformly-coloured golden pterostigma.

Hello Sergio,
An outstanding image of these two colorful damselfly in their mating pose. You managed to capture some exceptional detail and beautiful colors.
Love the diagonal perch and blurred BG. I find it interesting that in many damselfly the male and female are two completely different colors. Well done!!

interesting piece of work portraiting damsel fly. nicely presented. tfs.

hallo Sergio
