[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Shot” in Florida in the Ocala region.

Not sure about ID (probably Argia sedula) but I call him Jean-Claude van Damsel ;-)

Here is a link to an excellent sample fieldguide for florida’s damselflys:

www.macromia.com/Downloads/Zygop_Florida_WebR.pdf

It’s a pdf and has drawings in colour, much preferable to photos (even though I like to take them) if you want to go into the finer details, as you actually see all of them.

The workshop shows the whole animal from the side.

Enjoy!

Fantastic close up Gabi,

Composition and exposure are good. Good POV and framing. Wow, that is soooo close.

Excellent close up Gabi, the details are fantastic and the color is cool blue. :)

Wow!!! Awesome detail! I love the eyes. I have never seen one quite this color before -- ours are more cerulean or pale sky blue. And very shy -- you would never get this close to one unless it was either dead or unconscious from cold weather.

Hi Gabi!
I bet you painted this poor insect with blue spray ;-))) Just amazing capture! Ultramacro at its best!

Hi, Gabi.
It's very close! Interesting color schema for damselfly shot. Excellent sharpness and details.

Hi Gabi,
Very good extreme closeup with great impact. Love the detail seen - this is what macro is all about. I hope you don't mind, but I tried an alternate view. See what you think.
Very well done!
