Hallo Harm, very spectacular nature document in excellent composition and sharpness. I like pictures showing just these short and specific moments. Super!

Hi Harm,

A very sharp and detailed photo. Well done.


O Harm, that's phantastic.
The moment is so amazing - captured so sharp and wunderful. You are living in a dragonfly-paradise, I only had a small blue damselfly today in my garden and were happy - and you can see such a great moment.
Thanks for sharing it with us

Fantastic moment you have caught, Harm.
What an interesting phenomenon.
Just amazing.
The body of the new dragonfly seems so soft, and the wings are so milky colored. Interesting.
TFS. : )
