Hi dear friends,

Give back my feathers,
Here, my heart is so chagrin.

My hands are dangler, to thorn of bondage.

My feathers are ulcerous,

Give back my feathers,
Here I am alone, captive of ignorance and hatred.

Give back my feathers,
Until I can go over, whither, there have green trees,

Water is flowing there, and flowers that want me,

Butterfly, bee,
My friends,
And Philomel, that it will chitter for me,
Love song and freedom song.

Give back my feathers,

I miss for flying,

Give back my feathers,

I will die here,
I will die here.

Kind regards

Ciao Saeed. A revolutionary manner to inteprete a macro. Fantastic POV and texture in transparencies. You've had courage MF! Extemely dramatic and inpressive. Best compliments.


Hello Saeed,
a very beautiful emblematic and metaphoric picture, very good sharpness and splendid contrast with B&W colour tones, excellent POV and composition.
Best regards

Hi Saeed,
that the interpretation of a macro! I agree with Roberto.
Very interesting and original your idea. B & W colors give a very mysterious note.
Lyrics are added and the entire composition to be something special, congratulations.
Have a good day,

Hi, dear Saeed.
You managed to create a very poetic shot using dragonfly and wire rod. Simply brilliant POV and composition of the shot. Details of the wings and its "stage" are exceptional as well as nice smooth BG. I welcome use of W/B colour gamma. Very impressive work. Thanks a lot and kind regards.

Hello dear Saeed,
I realy like this kind of image B&W, but sometimes I don't have enouth courage to post this way. Congrats about your strong shot and the great way you show us this beauty and thinking image.
The composition and POV are so good.
Best regards,

Dear Saeed!

I knew you as an original photographer and I supposed you to be philosophical and poetical, too. Now, here is the proof.
I love this interpretation very much. The picture is very strong: the wounded dragonfly on a kind of barbed wire. So symbolic... And your deep text is complementary.

Kind regards

Hello Saeed,
Normally I prefer to see colour pictures but this damaged dragonfly posing on a dramatic piece of wire makes a fine presentation in B&W.
It emphasises the drama of the extensively damaged wings with which it has lost its freedom to fly well.
A sad image but one that perhaps shows some hope too!
Thanks my friend and kind regards,

Hello Saeed,
Great metaphoric photo of captured feelings. Therefore B&W is a good choice. The symbolic iron wire is also a fantastic choice. It tells everything.
Excellent POV and sharpness.

Salam Saeed,

A great capture with fine details & composition. Well taken & presented.

Best regards & salam!

Grande netteté et trčs belle présentation de cette libellule. La texture des ailes est magnifique.On peut voir quelle a eu la vie dur cette libellule avec une aile en moin ça doit ętre difficile de voler.
Bonne journée ...JP

ciao Saeed!
a macro "out of the scheme" with great symbolic value accompanied by a note with poetic vein that strikes for the meaning in the context of the situation in the country you live
thanks and take care sERGIO

Hi Saeed,
Great symbolic b/w shot, with the note a poetic one of the dragonfly missing his right lower wing. Dramatic post and an original idea. Bravo.
Have a nice Sunday, friendly regards, László
