|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The subject of the damsel in distress, or persecuted maiden, is a classic theme in world literature, art, and film. She is usually a young, nubile woman placed in a dire predicament by a villain or a monster and who requires a hero to dash to her rescue.|
In this picture, the damsel is a damselfly, who was put in danger by a camera.
The Damselfly (Suborder Zygoptera) is an insect in the Order Odonata. Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along the body when at rest. Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly broadens near the base, caudal to the connecting point at the body. Damselflies are also usually smaller, weaker fliers than dragonflies, and their eyes are separated.

Interesanta fotografia ta cu libelula amenintata de aparatul de fotografiat. Ai folost un mod bun de utilizare a DOF-ului limitat pe care l-ai avut la dispozitie obtinand o claritate buna pe capul si toracele insectei.
Consider foarte utila nota ta despre caracteristicile ce diferentiaza libelulele.
Felicitari si TFS,
Frumoasa domnisoara si poza :)
