Calopteryx virgo

Il maschio adulto , ha le ali marrone-nero scure con le vene blu. L’esemplare immaturo, ha spesso ali più marroni e molto più pallide. Hanno il corpo blu-verde metallico ed occhi blu-verde. La femmina, ha le ali iridescenti di colore marrone scuro, una zona bianca vicino alla punta delle ali e un corpo verde metallico con una punta bronzea all'addome. Le femmine fanno fino a 300 uova alla volta sulle piante acquatiche. Le uova hanno un periodo di incubazione intorno a 14 giorni, la larva si sviluppa per due anni nella vegetazione, nei residui della pianta o nelle radici sommersi. Svernano solitamente in fango o melma. I maschi sono territoriali, appollaiandosi nelle vegetazione ripariale e negli alberi. Inseguono gli insetti di pasaggio, tornando spesso allo stesso ramo.

Hi Roberto,

What a terrific shot of a damselfly! The iridescent coloring and details are excellent. It's a bit unfortunate that the FG leaf is not in better focus. But, your main image is great. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hallo Roberto
This is brilliant photography. An absolute showpiece at its best. Colour, detail, focus, sharpness, composition and overall presentation is excellent. Iti is stunning and I envy you for taking such a spectacular image. A great macro, worth a well deserved 10 out of 10. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hello Roberto,
J'ai manqué plusieurs de tes dernières images..j'ai trouvé cette magnifique libellule aux reflets metallisés que tu as capturé superbement et pour laquelle tu as choisi un cadrage vertical adéquat.
Un grand merci et
Bonne journée
