Hi Paul
Great macro shot with great composition, colors and details.
Good framing too.

Hi Paul, nice macro! Well managed with good DOF.
Nice details and colors.
(Sorry for ID)


Hej Paul,
a nice picture od a lovely dragonfly, maybe it's a bit bright but good details and nice colours. It could be a "Allmän ängstrollslända hona, Sympetrum vulgatum " but I'm not sure.
Well done.

Nice capture Paul,
I think what you have here is a Black-Tailed Skimmer (female) - Orthetrum cancellatum
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Dag Paul.
Deze heb je er mooi opstaan, overal scherp en een mooie POV. Misschien ietsje te licht maar al met al een mooi plaatje.

Hy Paul!
I look through all your pictures and all are something special!
Nice macro of this dragonfly! Great details, specially on his wings!
Well done!

Hi, Paul.
Nice shot!! very detail!
I think this species is a immature female named, Vagrant Darter (Sympetrum vulgatum).
