Hello Paul,
Welcome to TN! You've started with an excellent image, your point of view is marvelous as the details on head and odd multiple eyes. nice blue colours. Good job!

hi paul really nice first post. Excellent sharpness and an interesting subject. Loving the big blue eyes and pincers. Maybe a note would be nice though.

Hi Paul,
you start with a nice closeup of a damselfly, this was really close.
Good POV (Point Of View), nice colours and pretty good sharpness.
Well done.

Hello Paul, Welcome to TrekNature. This is a VERY good first post. A fine study for a close-up macro shot! Well done,

Warm regards, Kiran

Now this is Macro! Great focus and detail and the colors are vibrant. Note would have been nice. TFS

great close-up, the mandibles are fascinating

Hi, Paul

Czesc Paul albo pewnie raczej Pawle ;>
Milo widziec kolejnego rodaka na TN, szczegolnie gdy juz na wstepie przygody z ta galeria prezentuje takie zdjecie :)
Swietny kadr! Rewelacyjna kontrola glebi ostrosci i swiatla.
Z drugiej strony szkoda, ze brak tu jakiejkolwiek notki (na to nawet trzeba uwazac, zdjecia bez notek - chocby po polsku jak w tym przypadku) moga byc usuwane z TN jako niespelniajace zasad zabawy :)
A tak na marginesie to samiec pioronoga Platycnemis pennipes.

Hello Paul,
powerful close-up, an aethetically very pleasing, artistic image that is showing excitingly clear details on the head. Have never seen those razor sharp jaws that clearly before. The shallow depth of field is very well managed with precise focus on the parts of main interest, and creating an enoprmous depth by blurring the rest.
With thanks, and best regards,

P.S.: Welcome to TN!
