[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went to search for birds but didn't find anything special, so I ended with dragonflies pictures and this is one of them.
I used 1.4 TC eventhough I didn't need it, the advantage with using it is that I was far enough to catch dragonflies before disturbing them.
This is full frame picture, I hope you will enjoy.

Sorry, but I didn't succeed to identify this dragonfly, if I will get an identification I will add a note.

I am adding its name: Red-veined darter Sympetrum fonscolombii, female.
Thanks to Philippe Moniotte 'pgmoni'.

This is superb. The detail is incredible. I am glad you didn't find any birds!
I cannot help with an id, sorry.
Thank you for sharing.

Very good macro Elroyie.
The Sigma works fine. Very good sharpness, DOF, composition and colours.
Great work.

Wonderful. I would suggest Sympetrum fonscolombei (female)for ID. Typical is the eye in two colours. The species is indeed present around the Mediterrannean and in the Middle East
