[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Once more I'm posting the picture of White-leg damesfly (Platycnemis pennipes). Some data about the species you can find in my previous post.

This time it is female that is eating "lunch" - if you look carefully you can see that it has aphid in its mouth. "The second plate" is coming as next aphids are visible on the lower part of the grass.

Post processing: changing levels (making brighter), sharpening, resizing.

Thanks for viewing.

Ciao Ania,
spettacolare momento di cattura, eccellenti POV, DOF e composizione per la posa diagonale e lo stupendo OOF BG, straordinarie nitidezza e definizione dei dettagli, magnifici i colori e la luce.

Nicely capture macro, Ania. I love the details, tight composition, and the diagonal you have here. Nice lighting, too. I also like knowing that she's eating aphids -- I hate aphids!

Hi Ania,
Outstanding shot of this damselfly with a catch. Immaculate sharpness, details and colours and I like the way you have handled the natural lighting. Funny bend of the abdomen too. Excellent DOF, POV and the diagonal composition looks classic.

Hi Ania.
Simply perfect and wonderful in all aspect shot. Scene is sweet. Both damselfly and stem are fine and all together great an impressive composition. Details are superb BG is excellent too. Composition of the shot is blameless. Bravo. Well done.

Hi Ania
excellentní makro, ostrost detajly a pozadí jsou velmi dobré. A ta akce - to se prostě povedlo.
Zdraví Jiří.

Calkime niezle marko z typowo jesiennymi kolorami. Dobry detal i ciekawy moment. Swoja droga chyba pierwszy raz widze wazke z tak dziwnie "przelamanym" odwlokiem ;)

Ladna kompozycja. Mozna bylo jeszcze troche ciasniej skadrowac, zeby wazka byla jeszcze wieksza i zeby lepiej bylo widac co je ale i tak jest fajnie.

Hej Ania,
Ostre jak brzytwa jest Twoje zdjecie! Znakomite detale i cudne swiatlo, bardzo fajna kompozycja, fajnie rozmyte tlo, lekko fioletowy odcien znakomicie wspolgra z jasna zielenia i brazem waszki, piknie!!
Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

Hi Ania, wonderful dragonfly with splendid colors, great details and excellent sharpness, fantastic blurry BG, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Ania,
I missed this wonderful picture when you posted it, so I am happy to be looking at it now. It is a very beautiful macro image. The curved blade of grass on which the damselfly sits is like a green rainbow. Its curvature somehow matches with the curvature of the subject. The precision and sharpness in this picture are truly wonderful and the colours too are very attractive.
Thanks and regards.
